PUT TO THE TEST
The Observer/PHIL BULLOCK
City of La Grande firefighter Craig Gomes checks a fire hydrant at Crook Avenue and Umatilla Street Tuesday. Over 400 hydrants located in the La Grande area are checked annually to make sure they are working correctly. Hydrant testing may turn nearby residents' tap water murky, which can be remedied by opening up an outside faucet for a few minutes.
