Flushing of hydrants this weekend in Darien

DARIEN — The City of Darien Municipal Services Department will be flushing fire hydrants beginning Sunday.

The flushing activities will last from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. and take about one week to complete.

The city flushes all of its hydrants in order to remove any accumulation of minerals and other deposits that exist in the water main to maintain a high quality of water. In addition, the Municipal Services Department inspects all fire hydrants to make sure they're working properly.

As the flushing process removes accumulated deposits in the water main, residents may temporarily experience some discolored water. If this should occur, run the cold water until the line clears (three to 10 minutes). The city will post signs in advance of the area that is going to be flushed in order to advise residents of when the hydrant flushing will be taking place.

For more information, call 630-353-8105.
