Fire Hydrant Flow Testing

The Malden Fire Department routinely checks and flushes fire hydrants across the city.  This is done to check for accessibility, serviceability and flow rates on each hydrant.  When hydrants are flow tested, notice will be posted to our Fire Department Alerts page and we also recommend you sign up for our phone/text alerts and subscribe to the Fire Alerts category to receive up-to-date alerts.

Please note that this program is not associated with the hydrant flushing program run by our Engineering Department.
