The Department maintains hydrants twice a year. Once in the spring and again in the fall.
The Fire Department posts signs on fire hydrants near the intersections of the areas to be flushed. This is usually done at least three days in advance.

Yes. If the water was unsafe for any reason, a boil alert would be issued.
