The Albany Water Department (AWD) inspects and flushes hydrants throughout the year to ensure that every hydrant performs properly and reliably. There are about 3,500 hydrants in the City.
Residents will receive door hanger notification in advance of hydrant inspections. For updates from AWD, follow us on Facebook and on Twitter.
Regular hydrant inspection and flushing is vital in maintaining a good water supply for both firefighting and drinking water. If residents experience prolonged periods of water discoloration, they should call AWD dispatch at 518-434-5322.
