Spring Hydrant Flushing
As a regular maintenance practice, the Village of Algonquin Utilities Division flushes fire hydrants throughout the Village twice a year. Residents are encouraged to avoid using water while hydrant flushing is taking place as temporary losses of water pressure and water discoloration may be possible. Running cold water through open faucets for a few minutes will alleviate discoloration. Residents should avoid washing clothing until the water runs clear to prevent clothing stains.
