Akron Hydrant Water Flushing Begins April 23

fire hydrant

     The City of Akron, Water Distribution Division, will be conducting a water main flushing program within its service areas. Beginning on approximately Monday, April 23, the hydrant flushing crews will begin flushing hydrants in the Hudson area to help maintain the water quality and to increase and evaluate the amount of water available for firefighting purposes. The Water Department will be flowing hydrants from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on MONDAY through FRIDAY DAYS. 

     A discoloration to water is likely to appear. We urge the water users to check their cold water for discoloration prior to drawing water for cooking and for use in automatic washers and dishwashers. If discoloration is found, the water user is advised to discontinue use until water clears.

     Customers can call Akron to get a daily update on streets that are to be flushed by dialing the automated phone system at 330-375-2554, selecting Frequently Asked Questions, and following the prompts. Water customers can also log on to and select News Releases to get the latest hydrant flushing updates. Should the water user have any questions or need assistance, they are advised to call 330-375-2420.
