The City of Fargo Fire Department flushes hydrants annually to ensure that they are in proper working order.
When a hydrant is flushed in your area, iron oxide may occasionally become dislodged and cause your water to become rust-colored. If this happens, allow your tap to run for a minute or two and the water should clear up.
Motorists and pedestrians should use caution when approaching an area where hydrant flushing is in progress.
Out-of-Service Private Hydrants
If you see a hydrant with an out-of-service ring on it, please check with the building manager and ask when it will be back in service.
