    Beginning the week of September 18, the Public Works Department will flush fire hydrants throughout the Village. The flushing activities will take approximately two weeks to complete and will occur Monday-Thursday from 3:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

    The Village flushes public owned hydrants on a regular basis in order to remove any accumulation of minerals and other deposits that exist in the watermain to improve the quality of water for the customers.  In addition, the Public Works Department inspects all fire hydrants to make sure that they are properly working.

    As the flushing process removes accumulated deposits in the watermain, residents may temporarily experience some discolored water.  Should this occur, simply run the cold water until the line clears.

    The Village will post signs in the area that is being flushed to advise residents that hydrant flushing will be taking place.  If you have any further questions, please contact the Public Works Department at 630-871-6260.















    Commercial Real Estate Developer The Missner Group submitted an application for development approvals to construct a 192,000 square foot warehouse building on a privately-owned 13-acre site at the northeast corner of North Avenue and Kuhn Road. The Missner Group has withdrawn all applications related to this project. Should the Missner Group choose to resubmit the project they would have to start from the beginning of the application process and return to the Plan Commission.

    The proposed property for development is located between North Avenue and McNees Drive, which is the entrance roadway into Carol Stream's Water Reclamation Center (WRC). The proposed development site included the large vacant field at the corner of North & Kuhn, and the small unincorporated property to the east containing a white residential structure, which would have been demolished.
