The Niceville Fire Department has been doing its annual fire hydrant testing as required by law. If you experience brown water in your home, its caused by the hydrants flushing sediment from the water mains. We flush the hydrants to remove the sediment for 5 minutes before testing them but sometimes there is still sediment in the lines that works its way into your water lines. We do everything we can to minimize this but it's a necessary evil to ensure that the hydrant that protects your property is working when there is a fire. If you do happen to experience the brown water, run your water till it clears up. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
