2020 Hydrant Flushing Plan

The Public Works Dept. will perform the annual Hydrant Flushing Program beginning September 29, 2020 through October 16, 2020.  The Program will be performed during the daytime hours of 8:00 am - 3:00 pm.  Please DO NOT WASH LAUNDRY during the flushing hours, as rust staining of clothing may result.  Residents with water softeners are encouraged to check the cycle time of their softeners so that the unit does not regenerate during this period.If there are questions, please contact the Distribution Division at 630-671-5830.

One question that is always asked is - "Why does the Village flush hydrants?"  Hydrant flushing is routine maintenance that:

  • Improves water quality - Flushing removes minerals such as iron and magnesium that  collect in the water mains.
  • Improves water flow - By removing these minerals, the inside diameter of a water main is increased, allowing a better flow of water.
  • Hydrant maintenance - A fire hydrant is a mechanical device.  Operation of a hydrant lubricates internal mechanisms and gaskets.
  • Hydrant inspections - Any deficiencies are noted and repaired as necessary to insure that each hydrant will perform when needed for an emergency.

The schedule for hydrant flushing by area will be as follows:
