The Montreat Water Department and the Black Mountain Fire Department are finalizing testing of fire hydrants today. Today’s testing will be all over town, beginning in the areas of Shenandoah and Covenant Lane. This stirs up naturally occurring iron in the lines and may cause brown water at your taps. After the Fire Department tests a hydrant, the Water Department will flush the line. The brown water will be cleared once the Water Department has flushed the lines.
