Fire Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant Flushing Times
The Spring hydrant-flushing program begins in April or May and lasts about 4 weeks. The Village north of the BNSF tracks are flushed on even years, with the hydrants located south of the tracks flushed on the alternate years.
What To Expect During Flushing
During hydrant flushing, residents may notice a slight discoloration in their water. Run the cold water tap for a few moments to remove any discoloration.

Purpose of Flushing
Flushing verifies the hydrants are operational and eliminates any rust in the system.
