Annual Wheeling Fire Hydrant Inspections to Begin Next Week

Beginning Monday, April 15, the Wheeling Fire Department will begin inspecting fire hydrants throughout all city neighborhoods. The process will take place Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Testing will not occur on Fridays or weekends. The entire inspection process should take roughly 30 days to complete.
The testing process may stir up sediment resulting in discolored water. Should this occur, run water until it clears before using. 

Inspections of the hydrants are a proactive measure done each spring to ensure the hydrants and lines withstood the colder winter months, are not leaking water, and are functioning properly.
