[ARCHIVED] Fall Hydrant Flushing


Beginning  the  week  of October  12, 2020 and finishing on or  about November 6, 2020, 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 Public Works at 847-587-8570 or 847-587-3506 (M-F 7:00-3:30p.m.) or email
