Paducah Water currently has over 4,700 fire hydrants within its distribution system. Our goal is to flush each of these fire hydrants one time per year. We may flush as many as three to four times each year system wide. Hydrants on some dead-end lines may be flushed monthly. This is done to ensure optimum water quality and fire protection as required by the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Cabinet, Division of Water.

If you notice a slight discoloration in your water, turn on a cold water tap inside your home to full flow for a few minutes until the water is clear. If the problem persists, contact us at 270-442-2746 to report the problem.
