The yearly Bent Tree Fireworks Show will be held on the Fourth of July. Mark your calendars, we can't wait to see you all there! Look out for more information to come out in Friday News, The echo, and other outlets.
The Bent Tree Water Dept., in conjunction with BTFD, will be flow testing fire hydrants beginning June 13th. This is required to exercise hydrants and pressure reducing valves while establishing flows to maintain ISO ratings. We will be conducting a directional flush that will begin at the respective water tanks and flow downward throughout each system. Only a minimal number of hydrants will be flushed each day to allow water dept. employees to adequately flush mains afterwards. The flow testing process will take several weeks to complete. There will be no testing during the week of Youth Fest. The initial area will be on Shadowick Mtn. tank to encompass the Denny Ridge section along with Sassafras Mtn. Updates will be provided ahead of time for other sections.

UPDATE: Flow testing has been completed for Shadowick Mtn. Rd., Bella Vista Trail, Crippled Oak Trail ( to Cherokee Camp Trl.), Cherokee Camp Trl., and Camelot Way. Flow testing will resume on Wednesday 6/21 and include Sassafras Mtn. Trl., Denny Ridge Rd., Bee Tree Ridge Ct., Bee Tree Ridge Dr., Lynx Ct., Cool Springs Ct., Ripple Creek Ct., and Crooked Creek Trace.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Ashley Brownell
