The Prattville Fire Department and Prattville Water Works will conduct a flow test of the hydrants located within the City of Prattville during the month of April 2023. Testing will last approximately 30 days and will start each day around 8:30 am and conclude by 5:00 pm. 

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 to provide the residents of Prattville with adequate water for domestic use and firefighting purposes. 

Thank you for your patience while we conduct these tests. If you have questions regarding the fire hydrant testing, please contact Chief Inspector Fire Marshal Dallis Johnson at 334.595.0304.
