Lombard Public Works to begin hydrant flushing in April

LOMBARD – The Lombard Public Works Department will begin its annual spring fire hydrant flushing program on April 14.

Workers will flush more than 2,700 hydrants during a six-week period. The program is a vital part of the village's water pumping and distribution system maintenance schedule.

During flushing, each hydrant is thoroughly inspected and operated. Flow readings are taken to evaluate system capability to provide sufficient water supply. Large volumes of water are moved through the water mains during flushing to scour the internal walls of the pipes and pull fresh water into the distribution system.

Residents may experience a temporary drop in water pressure, as well as rusty or cloudy water, during flushing. These conditions do not affect the quality or safety of the water.

For more information, call the public works department at 630-620-5740.
