West Chicago, Illinois: October 1, 2020 - The City of West Chicago’s Water Utility Division will flush fire hydrants this month beginning on October 5, 2020. 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.
For any questions about flushing, please call the Public Works Department at (630) 293-2255.
