Fire hydrant testing April 27 to May 11, 2014

Written April 9th, 2014  


The Fallon/Churchill Fire Department will be testing fire hydrants during April and May in the evenings.

During this period of peak fire demand water testing, it is common for water consumers to experience discolored water. The discoloration occurs due to abnormally high flows in the piping system, which can stir up small amounts of naturally occurring sediment. Please understand that although the water may be discolored, it has been properly treated and is entirely safe. If the water is heavily discolored, you may wish to temporarily refrain from drinking or washing clothes. The water discoloration will typically be gone within a few hours after the fire flow testing is completed. After testing is complete, any discolored water in your home can usually be removed by flushing your water pipes for several minutes. It is best to flush cold water from an outdoors hose bib or an interior bathtub fixture.

We sincerely regret any inconvenience that may result from this vitally important fire flow testing of our water system. If you have any further questions, please contact the City Engineer’s Office at 423-9863.

Written February 23rd, 2014  


The Churchill Arts Council presents, The Paul Thorn Band.

Thorn has been pleasing crowds for years with his muscular brand of mu-sic-bluesy, rocking, unabashedly Southern. Thorn’s songs convey tales of people living on the margins of society in a mixture of the sacred and profane that covers the good, the bad and everything in between. His blend of Rock, Blues and Country has been characterized as being like going to church with a six-pack. More Info: or
