October 12th – 23rd, the Sherwood Fire Department, in coordination with Central Arkansas Water, will be conducting flow-and-drain tests on public fire hydrants within the city limits.
Because the inspections involve the increased flow of water from fire hydrants, some customers may notice brief discolored water at the tap during the process. The discolored water is safe but can stain clothing so customers are advised NOT TO WASH clothing in the discolored water. CAW further advises customers to check for discolored water in their washing machines before washing clothes during the fire hydrant testing and inspection schedule.
Customers with questions about the actual testing and inspection of fire hydrants should call the Sherwood Fire Department at 501.835.0342.
