The Ponca City Fire Department will begin flow-testing and maintenance of fire hydrants in the northern areas of Ponca City starting Monday, October 18.

This hydrant testing project will last for approximately four weeks with all hydrants north of Highland Avenue and Lake Road being tested. Maintenance will occur between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on the following days;

MONDAYS – The area between the western city limits and Union Street

TUESDAYS – The area between Union Street and 5th Street

WEDNESDAYS – The area between 5th Street and 14th Street

THURSDAYS – The area between 14th Street and the eastern city limits

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.
