Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities crews will be testing and flushing fire hydrants his month, according to BOPU spokesman Clint Bassett.

He says the first neighborhoods the crews will be working in will be areas west of I-25. Crews will also soon be flushing hydrants in areas west of I-80 and Waltersheid Boulevard. Bassett says water users in areas where hydrants are being flushed may notice water flowing from their taps is discolored. Bassett says such water is safe, although not up to usual BOPU standards.

He adds that the discolored water will usually dissipate if you run your water for a few minutes. He says if that doesn't work you should call the BOPU at 637-6471. Bassett says it should take ab out a month to finish flushing all of Cheyenne's roughly 3,000 fire hydrants.
