Fall Hydrant Flushing


To All Fox Lake Water System Users,

Beginning October 14th, 2019 and finishing on or about November 15th, 2019, 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 rust 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 7:00-3:30 p.m.) or email

Thank you for your cooperation during this time,
