  • 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.
