The City of West Chicago’s Water Utility Division will flush fire hydrants, weather permitting, this spring. The work will be done between 7:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Signs will be posted in the area prior to hydrant flushing.
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.
Thank you for your patience as we serve you. If you have any questions about flushing, please call Public Works at (630) 293-2255.
