The Village of Lake Zurich’s annual hydrant flushing program begins the week of Monday, September 21, 2020. Hydrants are flushed once a year to flush out accumulated sediments, assure that the hydrants are in proper working order, and insure water quality.
Although the temporary discoloration in your tap water is not harmful, we recommend that you DO NOT wash clothes the day before, the day of, and the day after hydrant flushing for your area since discoloration can occur outside of the scheduled flushing area. If your clothing should become stained, the Village offers rust-removing detergent, which must be used before the clothes are dried. This free detergent can be obtained at the Village Hall, 70 E. Main Street.
