If discoloration lasts more than 24 hours , contact the Utilities Service Center at 501 - 321 - 6200 .
During hydrant maintenance and testing , water lines are flushed in order to test hydrant flow and water pressure levels for fire control purposes . The process also helps maintain the integrity of the City’s water distribution system , flushing out sediment or deposits that may naturally occur over time .
