Fire Flow Tests 623 Main Street, corner Main St & Pearl St, Manchester

Description: The Town of Manchester will conduct a fire flow/hydraulic capacity tests, at 623 Main Street, corner Main St & Pearl St Manchester, CT to determine the effects upon the water distribution system. This test will take place on Thursday June 2nd starting at 10AM. The hydrant flow test may result in reduced pressure and/or discoloration of the water in the area of 623 Main Street, corner Main St & Pearl St, Manchester, CT. If water appears discolored, the homeowner should try to avoid using it until it clears. This will prevent rust and sediment from being brought into the home’s system.

If sediment does get into a home’s hot water tank, the homeowner should wait until the water clears and then open the faucet at the bottom of the tank to drain the collected material, which will settle at the bottom.

Also, if a load of wash is done during the period of discolored water, the load should be kept wet and done again after the water clears. Four ounces of cream of tartar should be added to help clean any discoloration of the clothing.

It normally takes a few hours for the water to clear in a home. If water appears discolored for an extended period, the homeowner should call the Water Division at
647-3201.
