Spring Hydrant flushing will take place May 24 through May 28, 2021 from 9am-3pm. Signs will be posted. We will notify you of any possible date extensions. Run all faucets and flush all facilities if discoloration occurs. Check your water prior to doing any laundry. If you run into any issues, please contact the Water Department at 815-403-7594 or Public Works at 815-355-2190.
The flushing of fire hydrants has several advantages such as systematically removing stagnate water, iron and sediment deposits from the sidewalls of the pipe. This will help to improve water quality and maintain fire flows, as well as make sure all fire hydrants are operating correctly.
Hydrant flushing may cause some temporary discoloration of the water. If you experience water discoloration, which does not clear up within 24 hours, please contact the Water Department at 815-403-7594 and someone will follow up with you as soon as possible.
While the Village water meets all safe drinking water standards, the consumption of dicolored water is not recommended. The Village also recommends residents refrain from doing laundry when flushing is underway in your neighborhood, as the sediments stirred up during the process can discolor some clothes. Finally, please make sure to close all windows in your home and vehicles during flushing in your area as heavy winds can cause water to drift and do not drive through an open hydrant as this water pressure can damage your vehicle.
