The City of Morganton will begin flow testing fire hydrants on August 1. The flow testing will last for approximately 10 days.

The flow testing requires a large quantity of water and may disturb sediment that has settled in the City’s water lines. Residents and business owners who notice a discoloration in their water supply should allow an outdoor faucet to run until the water becomes clear again.

Flow testing will occur in the following areas beginning August 1:

  • Day 1: East McDowell Street & Valdese Avenue
  • Day 2: Center Street & Vinearden Road
  • Day 3: Kirksey Drive & Amherst Road
  • Day 4: Hogan Street & East Fleming Drive
  • Day 5: East Union Street & Burke Drive
  • Day 6: Bethel Road, Knollwood Drive & Inglewood Drive
  • Day 7: Bethel Road, Woodlawn Drive & Willowbrook Drive
  • Day 8: South Sterling Street & East Parker Road
  • Day 9: Bethel Road & Stonebridge Drive
  • Day 10: East Fleming Drive, Dugout Circle & Sequoyah Circle
