Hydrant testing may discolor Newton water

May 10, 2012

Residents of northwest Newton may notice their water is discolored later this month as city workers test fire hydrants in the area.

Newton Fire Department conducts hydrant testing north of "A" Street and west of Main Avenue beginning May 21. Testing helps locate hydrants in need of repair or replacement, according to a press release from the city.

Residents who experience water discoloration are advised to allow faucets to run for several minutes until water runs clear. Discoloration occurs due to the disturbance of minerals inside water lines.

Call 695-4314 for more information.

They ancient, fragile and obsolete water delivery system needs to be replaced, not new fire stations built!

I have visited towns of similar size to Newton recently, and they a have functioning fire Houses much older than Newtons, but they have excellent, state of the art water delivery systems!

It would be nice to have everything, BUT WE CAN"T AFFORD everything we want!
