Fire hydrant testing begins March 21

Ponca City Now - March 18, 2016 5:16 pm

The Ponca City Fire Department will begin annual flow testing and maintenance of fire hydrants on Monday, March 21.

Testing will occur Monday through Thursday each week between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.. Flow tests will be completed in approximately five weeks.

MONDAY The area south of Hartford Avenue and west of Union Street

TUESDAY The area south of Highland Avenue between Union Street and 14th Street

WEDNESDAY The area north of Highland Avenue between Union Street and 14th Street, and the area north of Hartford Avenue west of Union Street

THURSDAY The area east of 14th Street

Hydrant testing near your home may cause your tap water to be discolored. If discoloration is noticed, you should flow water from the faucets in your home until it becomes clear again.

Water discoloration is not a health threat. However, water should be monitored before washing clothes because discolored water may stain clothing.

Residents who live near area borders should also monitor their water on the days designated for testing in nearby areas.
