Hydrant Flushing Schedule
The following is a schedule of the days the water mains and hydrants will be flushed. Residents will be notified if there is a change in this schedule. All hydrant flushings will occur on Saturdays between the hours of 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Please mark these days on your calendar.
- February 9th
- May 18th
- August 17th
- November 16th
It is recommended that you have bottled water available for drinking and cooking. We also advise you have several buckets of water available for flushing toilets and washing hands. We don’t recommend doing laundry at this time since the water could be brown and stain your laundry.
In addition, residents with hydrants on their property are asked, if possible, to clear the hydrants of snow so they can be found by the fire department in case of a fire in the area.

Unpaid water rents for all Village Residents are re-levied May 15 annually to Village Tax.
Residents are encouraged to conserve outside water usage during long stretches of hot weather without rain. Decreased water usage greatly improves operations of the filtration system.
The filter beds are designed to filter a maximum amount of water per day. That maximum amount is determined by how much water we use, not how much water is in the reservoir. If we use too much, the level of water inside the clear wells needed to maintain proper filtration is reduced, therefore making it necessary to limit water usage.
Providing village residents continue conservation efforts we will eliminate the need to impose a full water restriction.
