[ARCHIVED] Hydrant Flushing Announcement

The City of Athens will be flushing hydrants on the following date(s):

August 7th-9th               

Between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM.

The areas affected will be:

 Richland Ave.

 Hospital Dr.: OMH and ABH facilities


You may experience discolored water in these areas due to iron sediment in the bottom of the lines being stirred up from increased flow. The water remains safe.

Normally, no boil order will be issued for hydrant testing, but the city recommends you do not wash laundry during this time. Direct questions to the Engineering & Public Works Department at 740-593-7636 or the Athens Fire Department at 740-592-3301.
