Fall Fire Hydrant Flushing

The Lake County Public Works Department has released the Fall 2017 hydrant flushing schedule for water systems operated by the Lake County Public Works Department. Lake County routinely flushes water mains through fire hydrants in order to clean out sediments, maintain chlorine in the system for disinfection and improve overall water quality. The fire hydrants in Hawthorn Woods will be flushed October 16-20. After flushing, you may notice a slight discoloration of water. This is not harmful and will dissipate after a short time. Run cold water for several minutes if you wish to clear your pipes. Residents should watch for crews in their neighborhoods and avoid running their dishwasher or washing machine at that time. If you have any questions, please contact the Lake County Department of Public Works at PublicWorks@lakecountyil.gov or (847) 377-7500.
