There are approximately 2,000 fire hydrants in the City. The Fire Division inspects all hydrants twice a year to make sure they are in good working order and to coordinate any maintenance needs. Additionally, fire hydrants are flushed each spring and pumped dry each fall, before the first hard freeze.
If you have rusty water and it is not during the designated time for hydrant flushing, call the Columbus Water Division (614-645-7788) to see if there is a water main break or construction work in your area.
