Hydrant Flushing

Starting the week of April 12 until the week of May 10, the Public Works Department will be performing hydrant flushing throughout the Village. Hydrant flushing is the quick release of water from fire hydrants. It ensures adequate water flow is available to fire fighters, residents and businesses. It also improves water quality by clearing iron and other mineral deposits from the water mains. Sometimes hydrant flushing can make the water temporarily appear rust-colored because the iron and other mineral deposits in the water mains get stirred up. There is no health hazard associated with discolored water. Water is safe to use and consume during hydrant flushing, however it may stain laundry. Residents can clear the rust color by letting the faucets run for a few moments
