Why are the Village's fire hydrants flushed?
Hydrant flushing is necessary to test the hydrants for adequate water flow and water pressure. Hydrant flushing is also done to remove any sediments from water lines in order to maintain clarity and quality in the water distribution pipes.

On occasion, water is your residence can appear discolored after hydrant flushing. If this happens, simply run your cold water tap for a few minutes until the discoloration fades. Avoid washing clothes until the water is completely clear.
