Hydrant Testing Notice

Starting September 21, 2021, the City of Selah Fire Department will begin testing fire hydrants in the Selah area.

The City of Selah is asking for cooperation in cutting the vegetation 3’ away from the fire hydrants located on personal property within the city limits.  Primarily, this will aid the Fire Department in locating a fire hydrant quickly in an emergency.  Also, it will allow the testing process to be completed in a timely fashion.  If you have any questions or concerns about a hydrant on your property, please contact Fire Chief, Jim Lange, at 698-7312.

During the testing process some customers may experience rust-colored water.  If this occurs, discontinue using inside water, and run water from an outside source until the water runs clear. If you have any questions or concerns about water quality, please contact the City of Selah public works department at 698-7365.

The program is expected to be completed by October 15, 2021.  Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time.
