Trotwood Fire & Rescue to Conduct Hydrant Flow Testing

Gwendolyn Fou Community News, Fire Hydrant Repairs/Replacement

In an effort to assure an adequate water supply for fighting fires and to help maintain the lowest insurance ratings possible; Trotwood Fire and 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 2022. We recommend that you check your tap water for clarity before doing any laundry during these dates. Fire hydrant flow testing will be done between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm.

This process of flow testing hydrants will cause the 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.

Trotwood Fire & Rescue will be flow testing in the following neighborhoods in the following weeks:

May 2nd Shiloh Gardens; Wolf Run; Salem Ave; Shiloh Springs; Olive Road; Industrial Park; Northgate; Main Street and Free Pike
May 9th Salem Village, Drexel and Old Town
May 16th Broadmoor, Olive Road and Rural Areas
May 23rd Townview, Sycamore Woods and Westbrook Village
