The Athens Fire Department will be testing and flushing fire hydrants this summer in the City of Athens. The testing will continue the week of August 5 – August 9, 2019 and continue throughout the summer.
Hydrant testing will normally be done between the hours of 8:00am until 4:00pm, Monday through Friday. Water may be discolored in your area after the testing is complete. A boil order is not usually issued, but the discoloration may affect your laundry water.
Individuals may contact the Fire Department at 740-592-3301 or Water and Sewer Services at 740-593-7636 for further information. Also, listen to area radio stations (WOUB, WATH/WXTQ, WAIS/WSEO) for the daily hydrant flushing areas.
