City will test hydrants near FHSU

The Hays Fire Department will test private fire hydrants on Fort Hays State University on Saturday. Due to recent improvements to the university water system, the fire department is working to determine the available water supplies for firefighting on the campus. Slight discoloration of the water supply might be encountered, although there will be no health risks to the consumer. All reasonable efforts will be taken to minimize the inconvenience to the public. Drivers are asked to avoid driving through water discharging from a fire hydrant during the short flushing period.
