Fire hydrants serviced in Valdosta

January 4, 2005

Valdosta - People living in the city limits may notice some changes in their water color this month.

Firefighters are servicing all of the city's fire hydrants. This may cause some water to look rusty, but it should only be temporary. "That's just the sediments that have broken loose in the main lines, but it will clear up in just a few days and most of the time we get it cleared up before we ever leave the hydrant, we make sure its running pretty clear," said Doug Singletary.

It will take the fire department one month to service all 3,000 hydrants. They're starting on the north side of town.
