Hydrant Flushing Notice - 2017

Beginning the week of September 25th, the Norridge Public Works Department will begin flushing hydrants in your area to ensure that they are in good working order and to remove any sediment from the distribution system. 

Residents will be notified the evening before the flushing in their area will be done via the Village’s notification system - Blackboard Connect. Signs will be posted in each area before flushing begins. Flushing will be done between the hours of 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM Mondays through Fridays.  If you have not yet registered for Blackboard Connect, you may do so by calling 708-453-0800, ext. 5370, by picking up a form at the Village Hall or by registering on our website at www.villageofnorridge.com

Following the flushing in your area, you may notice a temporary discoloration of your water.  While your water is safe, you should run your faucets for several minutes after the water is turned back on, and prior to doing laundry. It is preferable to run faucets that do not have aerators (commonly found on kitchen and bathroom sink faucets). Most laundry tubs, bathtub faucets and outside hose bibs do not have aerators.

If you have any questions please contact the Village of Norridge at 708.453.0800.
