FILER, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — Those in Filer may notice water discoloration from faucets or toilets on Friday.

The Filer Fire Department is scheduled to conduct its annual fire hydrant maintenance and flow testing.

During testing, naturally occurring sediment can be disturbed thus leading to discolored water for residents. According to the fire department, discolored water typically is not dangerous, but concerned residents should avoid drinking it.

Testing in commercial areas may also take place on Saturday.

The fire department said these tests are done in order to make sure the hydrants have proper water flows for fighting fires.
