The Village of Woodridge Public Works Department will be flushing fire hydrants that are located north of 75th Street beginning the week of Oct. 14.
The flushing activities will take approximately three weeks to complete. Village hydrants are flushed on a regular basis in order to remove any accumulation of minerals and other deposits that exist in the watermain to improve the quality of water for the customers. In addition, the Public Works Department inspects all fire hydrants to make sure that they are working properly.
Residents may temporarily experience some discolored water. If this should occur, simply run the cold water until the line clears. Signs will be posted in areas where hydrant flushing will take place. If you have any further questions please contact the Public Works Department at 719-4753.
