City of Athens Hydrant Flushing Announcement








Hydrant Flushing Announcement


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

June 4 – June 7

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


The areas affected will be:

          East State Street, from Route 33 to the City Limits.


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 Engineering & Public Works Department at 740-593-7636 or the Athens Fire Department at 740-592-3301.
