If recent (less than one-year old) fire flow test information is available in our files in the vicinity of the desired test location, the requested information can be provided to the applicant in the form of a hydrant flow curve generated using our hydraulic model.
If recent fire flow test information is not available, the requesting party will need to have a flow test performed by either their internal staff, or a contracted party. The Spotsylvania County Utilities Department will not perform requested hydrant flow tests or provide equipment to be used during the test. A member of the Utilities Department staff should be on-site to witness the test.
After a field test has been performed, the Utilities Department can provide a hydrant flow curve at any nearby location to the test site.
