The town of Rocky Mount says it has resolved the issue with fire hydrant pressure.
Nine fire hydrants across the town have been dealing with water pressure problems since August. All of them were reported to be fixed Thursday.
“I have tested each hydrant to determine whether it is adequate for fire service, and am pleased that flow and pressure have been vastly improved to the point where our firefighters can expect to be able to safely perform their duties,” water department superintendent Bob Deitrich wrote in a news release.
The town of Rocky Mount annonced in early August that hydrants on Diamond Avenue, West End, Anderson Street, and Windsor Drive could be used to fight a fire, but did not have the proper water pressure.
