Hydrant flow tests

The 786th Civil Engineer Squadron is scheduled to perform annual fire hydrant flow tests on Ramstein AB from May 18-29.  Do not be alarmed if you see large amounts of water flowing through the streets.  Flow testing may cause rust particles to dislodge in water mains.  This is not a health concern; however, residents should run water faucets until clear and washing machines through a rinse cycle to ensure rust does not stain laundry. For additional information, please contact Water Plant personnel at DSN: 480 – 6641 or Comm: 06371476641.
