Fire Flow Test


The Henry County Water Authority’s Engineering Division performs fire flow tests to estimate the available fire flow from specific fire hydrants within our water distribution system.  The Engineering Division also performs fire flow tests for many customers looking to provide fire protection to their facilities.  Due to our ever changing system, it is imperative to keep accurate fire flow data accessible in order to maintain proper fire protection in an emergency situation.

Fire flow test data provides necessary information for water service planners, fire protection bureaus and building designers. Design professionals use the gallons per minute and pressure available from the water system when drawing sprinkler system plans.

Fire flow testing can uncover a number of mechanical problems so they can be repaired before the hydrant/sprinkler system is needed in an emergency.

If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact the Engineering Division at 770.914.3688 between the hours of 8:00AM – 5:00PM.
