The Peabody fire department will start hydrant testing that may result in discolored water in homes located in the designated areas.

The testing will begin on May 1 in Ward 4, Precinct 2 and Ward 5, Precinct 3.

Depending on fire inspections and emergencies that occur, the testing typically happens in two rounds; the first between 9:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. and the second between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Fire officials cannot determine how long the discolored water will last, but suggest refraining from washing white clothes. If residents are not doing laundry, they are recommend to run the dishwasher once in order to flush out the water.

For more information call the Fire Department at 978-531-3444.
