The Village has begun flow testing hydrants in Winnetka.  Work began in the far northwest corner of the Village near Scott Avenue and Forest Way Drive, and is progressing south and east throughout the summer. 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.
