Hydrant flow testing north of King Street

Chief Mike Arnold of the St Augustine Fire Department announced to local Historic City News reporters that firefighters would continue flow testing fire hydrants north of King Street next week.

Hydrants in the downtown historical area will be tested from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. with the remainder of the area being tested starting at 1:00 p.m. and lasting approximately 2.5 hours.

As always, the department works diligently to alert businesses with heavy water usage, such as restaurants or hotels, of testing in their area.

The department has expressed its appreciation for the cooperative spirit the community has shown during these important equipment tests in recent weeks.
