Fire Hydrant Flushing Begins Next Week

Hydrant Flushing

During the week of April 15, the Public Works Department will begin flushing all fire hydrants within the Village.

Opening fire hydrants and flushing out water on an annual basis allows Public Works to ensure that hydrants are in proper working condition and helps to flush sediment out of the distribution system. 

Signs will be posted in each area before flushing begins. The work is typically performed between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and takes approximately two weeks to be completed for the entire Village. 

Do not do laundry on the day hydrants are flushed in your area. Flushing may stir up rust that can enter washing machines and cause discoloration to certain types of clothing. Additionally, there may be discoloration in the water coming from the faucets in your home after hydrant flushing is complete in your area. It is recommended that residents flush water from their residential, interior system through a tub spout for a few minutes to clear out sediment. Please note that the water from the tap is safe to drink at all times. 

If you have any questions, contact the Water Department at 847.317.7245 or publicworks@deerfield.il.us.
