Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)–April 28, 2017.  The Park Forest Department of Public Works will conduct hydrant flushing from May 1 to May 31, beginning at 9 a.m., weekdays only. No flushing will be done on the weekends. Hydrants are flushed to ensure that water does not stagnate in the system.

During flushing, your water may become discolored from iron (rust) in the pipes. There are no known health risks associated with consuming discolored water caused from iron (rust) in the pipes, but Public Works recommends that you refrain from using discolored water until it runs clear.

It is also recommended that you not wash clothes when your area is being flushed. If your laundry becomes discolored, keep the items wet and pick-up a free bottle of Red-B-Gone at Village Hall.

Flushing signs will be placed throughout neighborhoods to alert you of when an area is to be flushed. Flushing begins in the north part of town (near the intersection of Route 30 and Orchard Drive) and proceeds south. Track the progress of crews at villageofparkforest.com/hydrantflushing or call 708-503-7702 for questions.
