2018 Spring Hydrant Flushing – April 9 – May 7, 2018
The City of West Chicago’s Water Utility Division will flush fire hydrants this fall. The work will be done between 7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Signs will be posted in the area prior to hydrant flushing. When more information is known, it will be posted to this page.
Hydrant flushing maintains West Chicago’s water distribution system and assures proper operation of hydrants in the event of an emergency.
Unfortunately, discolored water can result. Even when flushing is not being done in the immediate area, discolored water can occur. This discoloration poses no health risk. However, please check the water before washing laundry. If laundry staining occurs, do not dry the affected clothing. A laundry aid to remove iron stains can be picked up at City Hall, 475 Main Street. Please call the Public Works Department at (630) 293-2255 with any questions about hydrant flushing.
