The City of Kewanee will continue flow testing of fire hydrants beginning Tuesday 5/8/18. The Fire Department will be working on the project Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:00 a.m. to noon (weather permitting) to update hydrant capacity and flow pressure data, in addition to flushing the water mains of sediment built up. This project is expected to extend into the fall for this year.
Areas within or nearby testing areas may experience periods of lower than normal water pressure or discolored/rusty water. The Fire Department will alert the public through local media which areas they will be working in a few days prior to beginning work.
Work will begin on Tuesday 5/8/18 within the blocks from East Second to Pleasant Streets, and North Main to North East Streets. This includes all streets in between including East First, Willow, Lyle, Oak, Burr, Elm, Walnut and Grace.
These sections of hydrants are expected to start this week and should be finished by Thursday 5/24/18. These areas include 41 hydrants that will be checked.
Dates of work being done are pending, and could possibly be postponed for any unforeseen weather or emergencies in between.
