Fire Hydrant Flow Testing

Lakeshore Hydrant Services Inc. will be carrying out fire hydrants flow testing in the Village of Tweed over a period of two days.  This will be done on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 and Wednesday, May 8, 2019.  Hours of flow testing will be between 8 AM and 4 PM.

Warning: Hydrant flow testing can cause rust and sediment to be stirred up for some hours.  We recommend that a supply of drinking water be drawn prior to hydrant flow testing and that you refrain from doing laundry during the flow testing. 

Flow rate testing is needed to determine how much water is coming through the fire hydrants.  Hydrants flow testing is mandatory and is done every four years under the Ontario Fire Code- NFPA.
