Fire Hydrant Flushing October 4th - 8th


During the week of October 4th - 8th (Monday through Friday), the Bellbrook Service Department will be flushing fire hydrants between 8:30 am and 3:30 pm.  The purpose of water system flushing is to verify the safe operation of hydrants and valves, remove accumulated sediment/mineral buildup in the bottom of our water mains, flush stale water from dead-end streets, restore/help maintain chlorine residual throughout the water system, and continue maintaining a clean water supply.

The water flushing may result in temporary discoloration of the water and a possible reduction in water pressure. Water discoloration is not a health risk. The Service Department recommends restricting your water usage and setting water softeners to bypass. The discolored water may stain your laundry, especially white materials, as well as the possible staining of plumbing fixtures. Therefore, please avoid doing laundry during the noted flushing period. 

Before washing clothes, including times after the hours stated in this notice, please check the cold water for possible discoloration. If the water is discolored, let the cold water run for a minute (or two) and see it if begins clearing. If the water does not clear at that time, try again later. Unfortunately, the city cannot guarantee the possibility of discoloration even during the evenings and other times of the day as the water system has been disturbed. Therefore, please check your water carefully before doing laundry and inspect the laundry before it is dried. If discoloration of laundry occurs, a special detergent is available from the City.

For more information, call the Utility Billing office at (937) 848-4638.

On Wednesday September 29th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, there will be an open-house community forum to gather input and comments from residents and businesses regarding the future streetscape of Downtown Bellbrook.  The Kleingers Group was hired by the City to provide a planning document with focus on Franklin Street and Main Street.  The study will address the short and long-term infrastructure and streetscape investments the City should plan for to enhance the vibrancy and reinvestment efforts downtown.  The forum will include static displays and concepts to gain input and a sense of priority for the various elements of the plan.


“The City of Bellbrook updated our Comprehensive Plan in 2019 to guide us in efforts to enhance and grow the community.  Revitalizing Downtown was a resounding priority we heard from our residents, so we are taking action to put those priorities in place.  This is an exciting time for Bellbrook, and we want everyone to participate in shaping our future” stated Mayor Mike Schweller.


The forum will be held in the Art Gallery located at 15 West Franklin Street and is open to anyone interested in seeing the concepts and providing input to steer the final elements of the Streetscape Plan.  The open house forum will run from 6pm through 8pm.
