Brown Water In Maywood? Cool Down, They’re Just Testing The Fire Hydrants, Officials Say

Saturday, April 27, 2019 || By Michael Romain || @maywoodnews

Maywood Fire Chief Craig Bronaugh said that he’s heard about rust water coming from the taps of some village residents. Rest assured, he said, it’s just a temporary thing.

“If they let their faucet run for maybe 10 to 15 seconds, the water usually clears up again,” Bronaugh said.

The reason?

The fire department is conducting its annual spring maintenance of the estimated 300 fire hydrants that are located throughout the village. The process takes roughly three weeks.

Bronaugh said the department should be completed with the testing by sometime next week.

“Our personnel are good about getting out there and getting through that check list,” he said, adding that the village’s public works department handles any repairs to the hydrants that may be needed. VFP
