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.

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.
