Fire Hydrant Testing Begins April 15

Fire Hydrant Testing Begins April 15

The Ponca City Fire Department will begin flow-testing and maintenance of fire hydrants in the southern areas of Ponca City on Monday, April 15th. This hydrant testing project will last approximately three (3) weeks with all hydrants south of Highland Avenue and Lake Road being tested. Maintenance will occur between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:30 pm on the following days;

MONDAYS – The area between Flormable Street and Osage Street

TUESDAYS – The area between Osage Street and 4th Street

WEDNESDAYS – The area between 4th Street and 9th Street

THURSDAYS – The area between 9th Street and Prentice Road

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 adjacent areas.

The Ponca City Fire Department would like to thank all citizens for their patience and understanding while we work to maintain a safe community.
