Berea Fire Department personnel will be conducting flow testing on City of Berea fire hydrants beginning Monday, September 14, 2020. The testing will continue through the end of September. This process is performed once or twice per year in order to ensure proper fire protection flow rates and pressure.
The testing procedure also serves the purpose of removing sediment and mineral deposits that settle inside water mains over time. If you notice a slight discoloration in your water, turn on a cold water tap at your home—preferably an outside faucet, to full flow for a few minutes until the water is clear. If the problem persists, contact Berea Municipal Utilities at (859) 986-4391 for assistance.
