Hydrant Flushing Begins


City staff will begin hydrant flushing starting May 3, 2021.  Hydrant flushing will occur between 3:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on weekdays.  The crews will be working for approximately four weeks to systematically flow each of the 2,500 plus hydrants in the City.  The systematic nature of this operation also serves to remove deposits and sediment that can accrue in the water mains. Customers may experience some discoloration or cloudiness in their water for a short time following hydrant flushing in their area.   Generally, this will clear up by running some water from a cold water tap for a few minutes.  Although, the water is still considered safe to use during this time, customers should refrain from doing laundry while flushing is being conducted in their area.  Questions concerning the flushing operation should be directed to the Water Plant at (309)524-2300.  Please see the Hydrant Flushing Schedule attached below.
