Summer Fire Hydrant Flushing


Beginning Tuesday, May 28, the Fire Department will flow-test hydrants in Winnetka. Signs will be placed in the areas to be tested.

During flow testing, sediment accumulations are removed from the water system. You may notice water discoloration for a brief period after a flow test in your area. While the water is safe to drink, it can discolor laundry. If this occurs, run a faucet for several minutes or until the discoloration subsides. If water does not become clear after this procedure, please contact the Water Department at 847-716-3558.
