Beginning January 24, Daytona Beach will test its 2,646 fire hydrants and 7,607 valves.

The city must perform this test as part of a citywide annual maintenance program to ensure Daytona Beach has servable hydrants with adequate water pressure. Residents and businesses will experience little to no change in water service during the process.

However, there may be a slight change in watercolor because of varying velocities and flow rates in the water system. If this occurs, customers should open their cold-water faucets for a short time until the color is gone. The color change will not harm your health, but it may cause laundry staining.

Last year, Cardinal Estates, Cedar Highlands, Lindley Road, and Pelican Bay had minor water quality issues. Electronic message boards will notify utility customers within these service areas.

Residents will see Hydromax USA workers performing the annual maintenance around the city. They will begin from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the beachside Monday through Friday.

Testing will finish in September. Call (386)671-8815 for more information and questions.
