Hydrant Flushing Begins Sunday
The City’s Water Division will begin its 2018 Hydrant Flushing Program on April 29, 2018, and will continue for approximately two weeks. To minimize inconvenience to residents, hydrant flushing will be done between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. The purpose of this program is to flush out particles that accumulate in water lines. During or immediately following the hydrant flushing, water discoloration may occur. It is best not to draw large amounts of water if you experience discoloration. Residents with questions may call the Water Division at 630-260-2090.
