FALLS CITY - The Falls City Volunteer Fire Department has scheduled phase 11 of sandblasting and painting of 211  fire hydrants.

Over 90 hydrants on the south end of town were repainted last year. The company will start March 13 on east 17th Street and work toward north 35th Street.

Tops will be color coded to indicate the water flow from the hydrant.

Residents are asked to remove tall grass, flowers and weeds from around hydrants to assist in the process.
