Spring Hill Fire Rescue will be flushing, flow testing and conducting maintenance of its fire hydrants Thursday through Feb. 22 in an area bordered by Commercial Way on the west, Kass Circle on the east, County Line Road on the south and Timber Pines on the north. The testing may cause clouding in the water, which will make the water appear dirty, and users should allow the water to run until it is clear. For information, call Assistant Chief William Davies at 688-5030.
