Annual Hydrant Testing Begins April 18 in Cape Girardeau

The Cape Girardeau Fire Department and Alliance Water Resources will conduct their annual hydrant testing throughout the city beginning on April 18. Testing will occur between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. until approximately May 5.

During testing residents may notice a slight water discoloration. Run the water for about one minute if you notice discoloration. The testing could create a slight decrease in water pressure, which should be minimal and last only a few minutes.

Testing allows the Fire Department and Alliance Water Resources to maximize the City’s hydrants, allowing potential issues to be addressed.

For more information, contact Alliance Water Resources at 573-339-6357, or the Cape Girardeau Fire Department at 573-339-6330.
