Fire Hydrants Being Flushed

During the warmer months, the Broken Arrow Fire Department conducts routine testing on fire hydrants, to make sure hydrants are in normal working order. This involves releasing water at a high rate from the hydrants, which stirs up the harmless sediment naturally found in the bottom of our water lines.

As a result of fire hydrant testing in your neighborhood, you may notice the water from your faucet appears to have a yellowish or brownish color. This is normal! Your water will run clear again as the sediment settles back to the bottom, which usually happens within two hours.

If you continue to see discolored water or you have any questions, please contact the City Water Quality Technician at 918-259-2400 ext. 7381 between 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. After those hours, you may reach our stand-by operator at 918-259-8400.
