Fire Hydrant Testing and Flushing in the City of Athens


The Athens Fire Department will continue testing and flushing fire hydrants the week of October 28 – November 1, 2019 from 357 E. State Street to Madison Avenue.

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.
