Hydrant Maintenance and Flow Testing Underway
Over the next few weeks depending on weather, there will be a crew out doing fire hydrant maintenance and flow testing. The amount of water used during this testing is less than the normal flow testing done by the Fire Department but still may appear as an unusual amount of water on the street and also the curb and gutter. This is a picture of the trailer and equipment being used by the crew. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Jeff Cartwright Director of Public Works at (469) 853-9788 or email jcartwright@cityofmelissa.com to ensure that there is not a leak as they should be aware of the general area that the crew is working in each day.
