Fire Hydrant Flowing

The Hannibal Board of Public Works (HBPW) will begin the annual flow testing of fire hydrants and water main flushing the first week of April 2017, and continue for approximately 6 months until complete.  Flow testing will take place from approximately 7:00 am to 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday (except some holidays).

The drinking water may become discolored during the testing process.  If this occurs, please run the cold water in a bathtub for approximately 10 minutes.  If the cloudiness does not clear, please call the HBPW dispatch at 573-221-0955 to notify us of the issue.
