The Roanoke Rapids Fire Department will begin its annual hydrant testing Monday.
This process consists of taking pressure readings on each hydrant which allows the fire department to check performance.
Testing also helps with locating valves that may be closed, which would restrict water flow for firefighting purposes.
Please check your tap water for discoloration before drinking, bathing or washing clothes. If your water is discolored, turn the cold water tap on until the water runs clear.
The department expects to finish hydrant testing by May 31.
