Yesterday, the city of Jackson began their annual Fire Hydrant Flow Testing Program.

Between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. daily, fire department crews will be flushing hydrants and water mains to conduct flow tests, and clear buildup that may have settled in pipes.

Although residents should refrain from using the water until their own supply clears up, Kent Peetz, public works director for the city of Jackson, says the process does not affect the safety of the water supply.
