Hydrant flushing begins April 8

Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant flushing will be conducted April 8 through May 8. Flushing takes place on weekdays at 8:30 a.m. No flushing is done on weekends. Hydrants are flushed to ensure that water does not stagnate in the system. During flushing, your water may become discolored from iron in the pipes. There are no known health risks associated with consuming discolored water caused from iron in the pipes, but it is recommended that you refrain from using discolored water until it runs clear. It is also recommended that you not wash clothes when your area is being flushed. If your laundry becomes discolored, keep the items wet and pick-up a free bottle of Red-B-Gone at Village Hall. Flushing begins in the north part of town and proceeds south.

Track flushing progress at villageofparkforest.com/hydrantflushing or call 708-503-7702 for questions.
