City of Altoona Announces Fall Fire Hydrant Flushing
Wednesday, September 4, 2019
David Walter | Director of Public Works
Altoona, WI - The City of Altoona has started its fall hydrant flushing program. It is anticipated to continue the entire month of September and into the month of October. Hydrant flushing will be conducted throughout the entire city.
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.
During the hydrant flushing operation, you may notice discoloration of water when the flushing takes place near your home or business. If you experience this, turn on your plumbing fixtures until the water runs clear.
The community's cooperation with the annual hydrant flushing program is appreciated.
TIP: 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.
