MADISON, FL (April 5, 2017) – The City of Madison is working with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to eliminate or control the algae occurring on Lake Francis.

City Manager Tim Bennett and city Public Works Superintendent David Floyd have sought assistance from the Fish and Wildlife Commission and are hoping a solution can be put in place in the next few days.

“Lake Francis is listed in Fish and Wildlife’s database as part of the state’s inventory of water bodies,” Bennett said.  “Fish and Wildlife will determine the solution to the algae, and we look forward to working with them to implement that solution as soon as possible.”

The state agency, in its past support of the lake, has installed three aeration pumps and two fish-feeders and also re-stocks the lake.

“It’s been an outstanding collaboration between the city and the agency, and we appreciate what they’ve done to help us maintain the lake,” Bennett said.

Madison Fire Rescue to flow test hydrants beginning June 26th

Madison Fire Rescue will start flow testing fire hydrants on June 26th. The city has approximately 270 fire hydrants, 75 of which were tested earlier this year. This process may take up to two months to complete depending on department call volume.

Signs will be posted in the areas where flow testing is occurring and some streets may need to be blocked temporarily because of the water flowing to ensure safety.

Hydrants must be fully opened to ensure accurate testing of the hydrants so residents will see more water on the street than for normal flushing activities.

Flow testing may cause some of the same problems that flushing hydrants does, mainly discolored or rusty water issues.

Residents will need to let their water run if they start seeing rusty or dark colored water and be cautious when washing clothes especially lighter colored clothes or whites.

If the water does not clear up within 15 to 30 minutes, the resident should call Madison City Hall at (850) 973-5081.

Fire Chief Bruce Jordan says the department flow tests hydrants for many reasons:

  • Flow testing hydrants is required by the Insurance Services Organization (ISO) to maintain the fire department ISO rating;

  • Flow testing provides the data that allows the fire department to color code the fire hydrants according to how much water they flow in gallons per minute;

  • This information can be crucial to fire crews when connecting to a fire hydrant for water supply to fight a house fire.
