Public Works will begin the annual fire hydrant flushing on May 1 to remove sediment and assure proper working order. Signs are posted in affected areas throughout the summer.
When hydrants are flushed in your area, please check for possible water discoloration prior to use. If the water is discolored it can usually be remedied by running a cold water tap for 5-10 minutes or until the water clears. Postponing laundry for a day until the water is clear is recommended. Please call the Public Works Division with questions at (847) 362-3434
