Lake County Public Works will begin its semi-annual water hydrant flushing program Sept. 11, 2017, depending on weather conditions.
Hydrant flushing will be performed daily, Monday through Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., per the hydrant flushing schedule (PDF) and will continue until all water mains throughout our water systems have been flushed.
After hydrant flushing you may notice a slight discoloration of the water. Residents are urged not to do laundry during periods of flushing in your area to avoid staining of clothing, which may occur due to the disturbance in the water main. This is not harmful and will dissipate after a short time. It is recommended to run cold water for several minutes to clear your pipes.
The anticipated completion date is Oct. 20, 2017. Signs will be posted in each area before the start of hydrant flushing. Please see our complete hydrant flushing schedule (PDF) or call 847-377-7500.
