Open fire hydrants will be a common sight over the next 45 days, as the City of Minden begins a systematic flow test of all units, as required by Louisiana Property Insurance regulations.
Testing will begin Monday, May 15 in the area of the city bordered by Lewisville Road to the eastern city limits and from Berry Drive/Kennon Street south to Sheppard Street.
Utiliserve will once again be the contractor performing the work. They will be using appropriately marked vehicles.
According to public notice, the operation may result in temporary discoloration of the water supply for businesses and residences in the area. If this occurs, please open cold water faucets and flush until the water clears.
For more information, contact Minden City Hall at 318-377-1244 and ask for the Light & Water Department.
