Smoke Testing Fire Hydrant Flushing Set

By Staff | Aug 4, 2021

Starting in August the City of Sistersville will begin flushing hydrants and smoke testing the collection system. We will update the locations online daily as these items are being completed. The city flushes hydrants twice a year to remove anything that may accumulate in the didtribution system over time.

We will begin flushing on August 9. We will also begin smoke testing the collection system on August 9, as well. Smoke testing is carried out to identify illegal connections in the collective system. Once the testing is complete we will be asking residents to remove any connections such as down spouts from the collection system.

We be giving updates such as location on our social media and official pages. If you are aware that you have any of these conncetions you can remove them at any time.

If anyone has any questions regarding the flushing or smoke testing please contact the city building at (304) 652-6361 or leave a message at the water plant (304) 652-2721.
