– The St. Bernard Parish Fire Department will begin Fire Hydrant Inspections beginning on Monday October 11, 2021.
Individual fire hydrants throughout the parish will be opened for approximately two minutes to record water pressure and flow readings.
The inspection times will be between 9:00am and 11:00am Monday through Friday and will continue until all hydrants have been tested.
This necessary procedure is performed once a year to ensure that all fire hydrants in the parish are working properly.
- Residents may experience rusty water during this testing period
- Running water for five minutes should flush the lines and clear the rust
The Fire department would like to apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
