[ARCHIVED] FIRE HYDRANT FLUSHING SCHEDULED

Hydrant Flushing Announcement


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

Between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM.


The areas affected will be:

          W. Union Street

          Hospital Drive

          Columbus Road


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.
