The Northwestern Water and Sewer District will be flushing and testing fire hydrants beginning Sept. 25 through Oct. 26 on all hydrants east of Perrysburg to I-280 in Lake Township.
The area includes Ampoint Industrial Park, Owens Community College, Walbridge, Moline, and subdivisions near Belmont Country Club and The Hamlet.
Testing, which will be performed between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, could result in rusty water for some residents. Residents are encouraged to run tap water prior to using it for laundry. If rust appears on clothing, rust-removal chemicals are available through the district's maintenance department on Woodville Road or at its office on the third floor of the County Office Building.
