Beginning the week of October 4, 2021 and finishing on or about November 5, 2021, the Fox Lake Sewer and Water Department will be flushing all fire hydrants in both our north and south water systems. This is to ensure hydrants are in good working order in case of emergencies, and to help flush sediment out of the distribution system.
Signs will be posted in each area before the flushing begins. Flushing will be done between the hours of 7:30 AM and 4:00 PM on Mondays through Fridays.
Please Do Not do laundry on the days hydrants are flushed in your area. Flushing stirs up iron sediment which can discolor your laundry. After flushing in your area if there is any discoloration in your faucet water, let it run for a few minutes, preferably from a tub spout and it should clear up.
If you have any questions or issues during flushing, please call the Fox Lake Sewer and Water Department at 847-587-3506 (M-F 7:00-3:30p.m.) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
