The annual hydrant flushing program will begin April 29 in the center sections of the Village, with different neighborhoods in the Village being done over a two and a half week period. Informational signs about the program will be placed throughout the neighborhoods when crews are present. The hydrant flushing ensures hydrants are operable and have adequate flow rates for public safety. 

During the two and a half weeks of hydrant flushing you may notice that your water is discolored due to flushing. Please try not to wash white clothes until the water clears up (should clear up within an hour). Please check the map of hydrant flushing to see when your neighborhood’s hydrants will be flushed.

Hydrant flushing begins April 29 - April 30 for neighborhoods between Sigwalt Street north to Palatine Road; May 1 – May 2 for neighborhoods north of Palatine Road up to Hintz Road and neighborhoods south of Sigwalt Street to Central Road; May 3 - May 6 for neighborhoods from Hintz Road north to Dundee and areas south of Central Road to Golf; from May 7 - 8, the areas of the Village that are located north of Dundee Road and south of Golf Road will be done.
