The Prattville Fire Department and Prattville Waterworks will be conducting flow test of the hydrants located within the City of Prattville during the month of April 2016. Testing will last approximately 30 days and will start each day around 8:30am and conclude by 5pm.

During these testing periods, residents may experience periods of orange tinted water. If this occurs, flushing the faucets, commodes and other water sources will clear the water. Before washing clothes, fill the machine with water to check for discoloration before placing the clothes in the machine.

Fire hydrant testing is an essential function of these two departments in providing the residents of Prattville with adequate water for domestic use and firefighting purposes.

Thank you for your patience while we conduct these tests.
