Fire hydrant testing continuesSeptember 16, 2020 | Headlines
PONCA CITY — Fire hydrant testing continues today.
This hydrant testing project kicked off Monday and will last for approximately four weeks, with all hydrants south of Highland Avenue and Lake Road being tested. Maintenance will occur between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. today in the area between 5th Street and 14th Street and tomorrow 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. Residents who live near area borders should also monitor their water on the days designated for testing in adjacent areas.
