Hydrant flushing, Sept. 16 - Oct. 16

Hydrant Flushing

Park Forest is currently conducting village-wide hydrant flushing. Hydrant flushing began Monday, Sept. 16, and continues through Oct. 16.

Flushing takes place weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. No flushing is done on weekends. Hydrants are flushed to ensure 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 you refrain from using discolored water until it runs clear. It is also recommended 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 progress and find out when your area will be flushed by clicking on the link below, or call 708-503-7702.
