Semi-Annual Fire Hydrant Maintenance starting May 15, 2018

On May 15. 2018 the City of Louisville Fire Department will begin its semi-annual fire hydrant maintenance. Hydrant maintenance will be for the most part conducted between the hours of 7:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Saturday although there may be some occasions where personnel will be required to work later in the evening. Please be mindful of our personnel when approaching the fire department vehicles on the side of the road.

Residents may notice some temporary discoloration in the water. The discoloration of water is not harmful, and is the result of sediment that is always present in waterlines being “stirred up” during hydrant testing. As part of testing procedures, the Fire Department will flow each hydrant until the water is clear, however smaller water lines that lead to each house or business may still have cloudy water. If you notice discolored water it may be remedied by flowing water from your faucets, and a cycle through your washing machine until it is clear.

Fire hydrant maintenance is important in order to ensure the City has properly working fire hydrants. The hydrants are inspected, flowed to check for adequate water flow, and cleaned around to ensure there is enough clearance for operation of the hydrant.

A quality fire hydrant maintenance and inspections program is just one of the many components that the Mississippi State Rating Bureau evaluates when an audit of the city’s fire protection is completed. The City of Louisville currently has a fire rating of 7 with 1 being the highest, or best, and 10 being the lowest, or least desirable. Simply stated conducting these hydrant inspections, and maintenance assists in keeping property insurance low, and could possibly help in lowering insurance cost at the same time. Also fire hydrant flushing helps to insure that your firefighters are knowledgeable about the general water volumes available for firefighting operations and whether there are any major flow changes since last year’s test. Hydrant maintenance is critical to fire suppression and the protection of life and property.

If you have any questions regarding hydrant maintenance, and inspections feel free to contact The City of Louisville Fire Department at 662-773-9402.

Mayor Talks Trash

In an effort to combat an ever growing litter and trash problem within the community and in conjunction with the "Great American Cleanup " Project, Mayor Will Hill has issued a proclamation making March 6th through April 3rd as the "Community Wide Cleanup Month in Louisville. Mayor Hill's comments follow:

"Everywhere you look there is litter and ugliness, and it is not isolated to one street, one neighborhood, or one ward. A simple walk down Main Street is a burden of feeling compelled to pickup litter every few steps. We have many great things happening in the community and many more projects are unfolding over the months ahead, yet we cannot allow the big things over shadow the small things that ruin our chances to have the community we all desire. Littered streets, intersections, and walkways become a magnet for more litter and we must all pull together to do our part. Teamwork makes the dream work, if everyone does a little we can achieve so much but if only a few try to do a lot it will not be as successful. I plead with everyone, every neighborhood, every church, and every club to determine how you may help cleanup Louisville."

"The City of Louisville routinely tries to provide trash detail for community service through the Louisville Police Department. Unfortunately, we have had limited participation in recent months and the task at hand is beyond achievable by a select few individuals in a few days. I have been approached about the Louisville Police Department's role in littering and the reality is the Police cannot be everywhere at every moment. I am instructing the Police Department to be more aggressive as littering is against the law."
