HYDRANT FLUSHING SCHEDULE

APRIL 15 – 26 (6:30am – 3:00pm)
Flushing will occur in the Village of Barrington, Paganica of Barrington Hills, Braymore, Weatherstone, Glencrest, and Sanctuary of Inverness

APRIL 29 – MAY 3 (6:30am – 3:00pm)
Flushing will occur in Abbey Woods and Estates of Inverness Ridge

The Village conducts annual flushing of the water distribution system to eliminate as much mineral content as possible from the domestic water supply. Fire hydrant flushing removes a considerable amount of loose mineral content and “settleable” solids that accumulate in the water system over a period of time and it also allows Public Works to ensure all hydrants are working properly in the event they are needed to put out a fire.

Flushing will occur from April 15th through May 3rd (as listed above, weather permitting). You may experience discoloration, low water pressure, and rusty water during flushing operations. This may occur during the entire flushing period, even when flushing may not be in your immediate area. Although water may be discolored, it is safe to drink; however, until the water runs clear, you should avoid washing clothes, especially whites. If you need additional information, please call Public Works at 847-381-7903.
