Summer Hydrant Flushing

May 11, 2018 09:27 AM

The Village will soon begin flow-testing hydrants in Winnetka; work will continue throughout the summer.  Signs will be placed in the areas to be tested; in addition click here for a map showing current testing areas. 

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.
