The Mansfield Fire Department will begin a fire hydrant flow testing and flushing program starting June 12. The program will continue thru-out the summer until all hydrants have been tested and flowed.

Personnel will begin testing and flushing hydrants in the southern part of Mansfield and work their way out north to the airport.

Testing will normally be conducted between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM. Citizens may experience temporary low flow pressure or water discoloration. During times of testing, hydrants could be left open and continue to flow until testing is complete.

Water Repair and Utility Collections will answer any questions or concerns. All Fire Stations and the Water Repair Department have packets of rust out. All changes to the testing schedule can be found on the city’s web site.
