[ARCHIVED] Hydrant Flushing Aug 30

Hydrant Flushing Announcement


The Fire Department will be flushing hydrants this week on Tues, Aug 30, 8am-4pm on East State St. beginning at the intersection at Stimson and continuing East to the intersection at Alexander St., as well as Wallace Drive at East Elementary to Ohio Ave. & Watt St.


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.


Please direct your questions to the Athens Fire Department at 740-592-3301 or the Engineering & Public Works Department at 740-593-7636.
