Residents May Experience Brown Water
The City of Maricopa Fire Department, in collaboration with Global Water Resources Inc., will conduct routine fire hydrant flushing and maintenance within the City limits to help ensure hydrants are operational, provide adequate water flow, and maintain adequate system pressure. The flushing program will start in the Tortosa neighborhood the week of July 6th.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends that fire hydrants be tested and flushed, at a minimum, every other year, to ensure the proper functioning of hydrants. The Insurance Service Office (ISO) also requires hydrant testing for its Fire Protection Rating, which directly affects property owner insurance premiums.
