Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)–September 18, 2018

Hydrant flushing will be conducted Oct. 1 through Oct. 19. Flushing takes place on weekdays at 8:30 a.m. No flushing is done on weekends. Hydrants are flushed to ensure that water does not stagnate in the system. During flushing, your water may become discolored from iron in the pipes. There are no known health risks associated with consuming discolored water caused from iron in the pipes, but it is recommended 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 began in the north part of town and proceeds south.
