WATER MAIN FLUSHING

Begins Thursday, September 1, 2016

 Notice to all Village Water Customers

Starting on Thursday, September 1, we will start Flushing Water Mains using fire hydrants.

  • You may see a reduction in water pressure, discoloration, and possibly cloudy water throughout the flushing process.
  • This will affect all water customers within the Village.
  • The water will still meet all EPA requirements and is safe to drink.

The flushing cycle will take several weeks to complete.
