Hydrant Checks Underway in Wheeling

The Wheeling Fire Department is checking fire hydrants beginning today. The checks are being done to determine just how the hydrants stood up to the weather this past winter. In doing the checks, it is normal for sediment to get stirred up, and you may see discolored water for a little while. If that happens, officials say simply let your water run for a little bit until it clears up. The hydrant checks will be going on in various neighborhoods for about the next month or so.
