Notice To Residents:

The Griffith Fire Department will be conducting semi-annual fire hydrant testing throughout the month of October. This testing is conducted to ensure that fire hydrants throughout the community are in proper working order. The flushing operation may result in brief periods of reduced water pressure or discolored water. Residents are asked to run their water until it clears before drinking or doing laundry and refrain from washing white or light colored clothing during the flushing period (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday thru Saturday). When the flushing operation is complete, normal water pressure and clear water should return. If you experience discoloration and rust particles in your water locate the farthest and highest cold water faucet in your home from the water meter. Remove the aerator if there is one and turn on the cold water faucet until the water runs clear, if the water is still discolored after running the cold water for 10 minutes, please turn off the faucet and check it again one hour later. Should a problem persist please call the your Water Department.
