Fire hydrant flushing, maintenance to begin Tuesday in Shawnee

SHAWNEE TOWNSHIP — Shawnee Township Fire Department personnel will conduct fire hydrant maintenance and flow testing starting Tuesday and continuing through the month of May, weather dependent, or until testing is complete.

According to Platoon Chief John Norris, the tests will likely cause the water within the municipal water supply lines to become discolored, which is normal but can create a problem for residents who wash laundry during that time. Residents should flow water from a cold water tap for several minutes, assuring that the water is clear, before doing any laundry during this time, Norris said.
