West Fargo Fire Hydrants Are Getting Spring Cleaning
The City of West Fargo is cleaning out fire hydrants around town to freshen them with clean water
WEST FARGO, ND — Fire hydrants are flowing with water throughout West Fargo, but for good reason.
The City of West Fargo Public Works Department began flushing fire hydrants on south of the interstate and will end on the north side.
The purpose is to clean out the city’s main filtration system and ensure the water is fresh.
The process takes from two to four weeks and happens once every spring and fall.
“Trying to get some of the stagnant water out of the pipes and also more importantly, making sure our fire hydrants are operational for our fire department and the citizens,” said Crew Chief Matt Staebler.
The flushing will take place between 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each weekday.
