[ARCHIVED] Village of Montgomery Spring Hydrant Flushing

The Village of Montgomery Public Works Department crews will begin flushing water mains in the Village and unincorporated Boulder Hill Subdivision during the weeks of April 8, 15, and 22. This procedure clears sediment from the water distribution line, helps maintain water quality, and verifies proper operation of the hydrants. 

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 daily according to the following schedule: 

Week of April 8th: Areas east of Orchard Road to Hill Avenue (includes Parkview Estates) and north of Route 30 (Seasons Ridge) up to Ashland Avenue. 

Week of April 15th: In unincorporated Boulder Hill, South of Route 30 to Circle Drive West and from Route 25 to Douglas Road; within the Village of Montgomery, Lakewood Creek West, Fairfield Way, and Foxmoor. (Boulder Hill Subdivision could take up to approximately 6 weeks to flush. This area will undergo directional flushing, this flushing has been proven to be very effective but requires increased time to complete) 

Week of April 22nd: Subdivisions west of Orchard Road to Big Bend Road and from Galena Road to Jericho Road, including Montgomery Crossings, Lakewood Creek, Blackberry Crossing, Blackberry Crossing West, Huntington Chase, Balmorea, Orchard Prairie North, and Saratoga Springs. 

If you have any questions about the hydrant flushing program, please contact Dave Martin, Utility Superintendent, at 331-212-9042.
