Annual Hydrant Flow Testing
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 2012, 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 cloudy or muddy during the testing process. If this occurs, please run your cold water in a bathtub for approximately 10 minutes. If the cloudiness does not clear up, please call the HBPW dispatch at 573-221-0955 to notify us of the issue.
