Hydrant Flushing in Winnetka
May 13, 2016 09:27 AM
The Village is again flow testing hydrants - work begain in the far southeast corner if the Village near Winnetka Avenue and Sheridan Road, and is progressing north from there. Signs will be placed in the areas to be tested; to see a map of the testing areas for the next few weeks, click here.
During flow testing, sediment accumulations are removed from the water system. You may notice water discoloration for a brief period after the flow test in your area. While the water is safe to drink, it can discolor laundry; run the faucet for several minutes or until the discoloration subsides. If the water does not become clear after this procedure, please contact the Water Department at 847-716-3558.
