Hydrant Flushing Begins Sept. 14

Water Discoloration Could Occur

The City of St. Charles is performing hydrant flushing beginning Sept. 14, 2020, and continuing through Oct. 16, 2020. Please note that hydrant flushing could temporarily cause water discoloration, even for homes outside the particular flushing area. The discoloration is caused by minerals that get stirred up in the water mains.

The Public Works Water Division performs hydrant flushing as part of the regular maintenance to the City’s water distribution system. Flushing water through the mains helps reduce mineral build-up and ensures the hydrants are ready for emergency use. Click here for more information, including the full schedule.
