Hydrant Testing in the City of Lorain

Lorain Fire Department

The Lorain Fire Department will be testing fire hydrants throughout the City of Lorain from May 1, 2017, through October 1, 2017.  Testing will be conducted weekdays between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm.


During this testing period, it is advisable to check the condition of your water before washing clothes or using the water for other purposes, as it is normal for the water to appear cloudy or discolored during testing.  If water is cloudy or discolored, the cold water should be run until it is clear.


The Lorain Fire Department regrets any inconvenience caused by the testing of hydrants.  Annual testing is necessary to insure the ability to protect the lives and property of the residents of the City of Lorain.


Thank you for your patience.
