THE FLORENCE FIRE DEPARTMENT HAS STARTED THE ANNUAL FLOW TESTING ON FIRE HYDRANTS.  ALL HYDRANTS IN FLORENCE WILL BE TESTED OVER THE NEXT TWO WEEKS. DURING THIS TIME, YOU MAY EXPERIENCE DISCOLORED WATER. THE WATER IS HARMLESS AND WILL CLEAR AFTER YOU FLUSH YOUR LINES. HOWEVER, WHEN THE WATER IS DISCOLORED DUE TO POTENTIAL STAINING, DO NOT WASH CLOTHING. IF YOUR CLOTHES ARE IN A WASH CYCLE, DO NOT DRY.  ALLOW CLOTHES WASHED IN STAINED WATER TO REMAIN WET UNTIL THE WATER IS CLEAR. WHEN YOUR WATER RUNS CLEAR, REWASH YOUR CLOTHES. PLEASE CALL  OUR FLORENCE GAS & WATER 24/7 DISPATCH NUMBER AT 256-760-6490 FOR ASSISTANCE OR CONCERNS. YOU CAN ALSO CONTACT FLORENCE FIRE & RESCUE AT 256-760-6475.
