City of Hays
The Hays Fire Department will be inspecting and flow testing fire hydrants on Friday in the area from Ash St. to Vine St. between 4th St. and 13th St., and from Wheatland Ave. to Commerce Parkway between 13th St. and 22nd St.
This is part of a coordinated effort by the city of Hays to inspect all fire hydrants in the city and flush all water mains annually.
Inspecting fire hydrants ensures that the valves operate properly and that there is no damage or obstructions that will prevent or interfere with the prompt use of fire hydrants in an emergency. Firefighters are also checking the pressure and volume of water mains in each neighborhood for firefighting purposes.
