Lombard Public Works crews to begin hydrant flushing
LOMBARD — Beginning Monday, employees with the Lombard Public Works Department will be traveling throughout town and flushing more than 2,700 hydrants in the village. This process is done every spring and helps maintain the infrastructure of the village's water system.
Each hydrant in the village will be opened, and a Public Works member will take a flow reading to determine that water is flowing at a proper water pressure. Low water pressure can indicate a closed water main valve or broken piece of equipment.
During the hydrant flushing process, large volumes of water will move through the water main system and this will help to clean deposits from the inner walls of pipes.
