The City of Akron Water Department is testing its water main on Ravenna Road and Stow Road today, June 18 from 7:30 am to 5 pm.

To help in the process, a hydrant will be flushed at the intersection of Stow Road and Hudson-Aurora Road to increase flow in the water main and to assist a newly installed "smart ball" sensor that will help identify leaks and air pockets. City of Akron staff will be directing the water flow into the gutters and storm sewers to avoid disturbance to travelers.

Residents should contact the City of Akron Water Department at 330-678-0077 ext. 436, with any questions.
