Milton FD now conducting hydrant maintenance.


Milton Fire Chief Robert Edgar would like to alert residents the department’s semi-annual fire hydrant maintenance is now underway.

Edgar said the city-wide maintenance effort will last into mid-May. During testing, firefighters flow the water in the hydrants and check to make sure they are in working order.

Please note: depending on hydrant placement in the water main system, this may inadvertently cause sediment to be loosened in the lines. As a result residents may see temporary discoloration in water coming from their faucets, showers, washing machines or dishwashers, said Edgar.

If this happens, please call the City of Milton at 678-242-2570.

“We’ll be happy to come out and flush the line,”
said Edgar.
