Time to Fire Up the Hydrants! 

Help celebrate 80 years of drinking water delivery service from the JG Beecham Drinking Water Treatment Plant by turning downtown fire hydrants into functional, life-saving, creative pieces of art.  

Visit our Fire Up the Hydrants' page to learn how you could be one of 16 artists selected to paint hydrants in the downtown Athens area.  The hydrants will serve as a line of defense against fires, as well as unique displays of public art for years to come.
