The next section of Fire Department hydrant testing originally scheduled to begin Tuesday , will now start on Thursday. This will extend the length of time for work in that area.
The City of Kewanee will continue flow testing of fire hydrants as the Fire Department will be working to update hydrant capacity and flow pressure data, in addition to flushing the water mains of sediment built up.
Areas within or nearby testing areas may experience periods of lower than normal water pressure or discolored/rusty water. The Fire Department will alert the public through local media which areas they will be working in a few days prior to beginning work.
The next area planned to begin work will be on Thursday 6/22/17 and will include blocks in between Willard Street to East Street South, and East McClure to East Mill (as well as some residents north of Mill towards East Division. This also includes residents within these areas on Grier, Mosher, Emmons, Smith, and Poplar.
Dates of work being done are pending, and could possibly be postponed for any unforeseen weather or emergencies in between.
