Trotwood Fire & Rescue Hydrant Flow Testing

Ciara Lewis Community News

In an effort to assure an adequate water supply for fighting fires and to help maintain the lowest Insurance Ratings possible, Trotwood Fire & Rescue personnel will be checking all fire hydrants for operation and flow. Trotwood Fire & Rescue will conduct fire hydrant flow testing between the dates of April 1st thru September 30th, 2019 see the schedule below for the exact dates in your neighborhood. We recommend that you check your tap water for clarity before doing any laundry during these dates.

This process of flow testing hydrants will cause rust in the water lines. Trotwood Fire & Rescue and the Montgomery County Water Dept. no longer offer rust removing detergents. Should you get rust in your clothing, please follow these steps:

  • Do not permit the clothing to dry.
  • Purchase a detergent with rust removing agents and follow the cleaning instructions.
