[ARCHIVED] Spring Hydrant Flushing

The Village of Montgomery Public Works Department crews will flush water mains on the Village’s west side during the week of April 28, 2014. This procedure clears sediment from the water distribution line, helps maintain water quality, and verifies proper operation of the hydrants.

Work will occur in subdivisions west of Orchard Road to Dickson Road and from Galena Road to Jericho Road, including: Montgomery Crossings, Lakewood Creek, Lakewood Creek West, Fairfield Way, Foxmoor, Blackberry Crossing, Blackberry Crossing West, Huntington Chase, Balmorea, Orchard Prairie North, and Saratoga Springs.

Residents are encouraged to refrain from washing laundry when flushing is done in or near their neighborhood as the temporarily discolored water may cause laundry staining. Residents should also run their cold water taps first to clean out any sediment that may enter the water lines inside the homes. Public Works crews will flush hydrants from approximately 7:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Water main flushing east of Orchard Road and in Boulder Hill Subdivision will be scheduled for mid to late May. Additional scheduling information will be distributed at that time.

If you have any questions about the hydrant flushing program, or any other Public Works service, please contact the Public Works Department at 630-896-9241.
