FIRE HYDRANT FLOW TEST
A fire hydrant flow test provides pressure and flow data at specific fire hydrants within the District’s distribution system. The data can be used to assess the pressure and flow available for fire protection, sprinkler system design, mainline design, and proper sizing of domestic and/or fire service lines.

The District conducts fire hydrant flow tests either in the field or via a hydraulic model. If conducted in the field, the fire hydrant flow test requires testing three fire hydrants: (1) Flowing & (2) Residual. The first hydrant is the flow hydrant, which is located closest to the property being tested. The second and third are the test (residual) hydrants and are located directly upstream or downstream from the flow hydrant. If conducted in the hydraulic model, the District will simulate conditions on the desktop to produce the same results.
