Hattiesburg Fire Department Conducts Annual Testing

Hattiesburg Fire Department Conducts Annual Testing

Hattiesburg, Mississippi – On Monday, May 6, the Hattiesburg Fire Department will begin its annual flush testing on hydrants throughout the city. This a requirement per the Mississippi State Rating Bureau and plays a vital role in our rating each year.

Residents may encounter blocked roads or traffic detours during this time, as well as low water pressure or discolored water. These are the typical side effects of hydrants being flushed. While we know the side effects of flushing hydrants may be inconvenient, this testing is a requirement per the Mississippi State Rating Bureau and plays a vital role in our rating each year. It also allows us to check and perform maintenance where needed.

If a resident experiences loss of service or an elongated time of low pressure or discolored water, please call 601-545-4500.

Each Friday, a list of areas affected for the following week will be posted below (upcoming week listed first). All schedules may fluctuate depending on call volume and the weather.
