My opinion on what may have possibly happened, 
Based on the information that has been currently provided: 

The City of Rockford will begin its annual fire flow testing program on Monday,
October 31, 2022. Flow testing occurs Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:00pm

The City of Rockford implements a fire flow testing program annually to ensure that our fire hydrants
flow with adequate pressure in the event of a fire.

Customers are advised that they may experience discolored water during flow testing. While not a health
hazard, flushing iron (red water) or manganese (black water) may become stirred up within the main
which may create staining on porcelain and laundry.

This work may result in the disturbance of sediment, possibly containing lead. It is recommended that
customers flush their water lines for 1 – 2 minutes once work is completed in their area including
removing and cleaning faucet aerator screens to remove sediment.

We anticipate that this program will last for approximately 6 weeks.
You may refer to the attached map to view progress. The boxed area represents the area where the crew
is currently concentrating efforts.
Water quality questions and concerns may be directed to the Water Quality Section at 779-348-7151.


We keep everyone ANONYMOUS,
Unless you let us know to credit your name.
