Fall Fire Hydrant Flushing Announced

Friday, September 28, 2018
City staff

ALTOONA, WI - The City of Altoona has announced that the fall hydrant flushing program will begin next week (the week of Monday, October 1st).  Hydrant flushing is conducted throughout the City, and is anticipated to take place during the month of October.

Residents may notice discoloration of water when the flushing takes place in their neighborhood. If you experience a discoloration of water, turn on your plumbing fixtures until the water runs clear. It is best to run an outdoor fixture or a cold-water tap in a laundry tub or bathtub first until the water runs clear, and then run water from other fixtures.

The City realizes that hydrant flushing may cause some inconvenience, however, the flushing program is necessary to maintain a good water supply for both firefighting and domestic consumption. The community's cooperation with the annual hydrant flushing program is appreciated.

If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact the City of Altoona at (715) 839-6092 or visit the City's website at www.ci.altoona.wi.us for updates.
