The City of Victoria Fire Department is starting its annual maintenance checks on fire hydrants throughout the city.
The maintenance checks started this week and will continue for two to three months. Crews will be working to ensure that fire hydrants are operating correctly. Residents are asked to exercise caution if they see crews working on or near fire hydrants.
There will be no disruption in water pressure as a result of these maintenance checks.
