There will be a special hydrant flushing Monday, May 10 starting at 9 a.m. at the new multi-use building on the Kane County Judicial Center campus in St. Charles.
This may cause water discoloration for some residents along Randall Rd and to the west. See map. Potential area affected outlined in blue.
Sometimes hydrant flushing can make the water temporarily appear rust-colored because the iron and other mineral deposits in the water mains get stirred up. There is no health hazard associated with discolored water. Water is safe to use and consume during hydrant flushing, however it may stain laundry. Our hydrant flushing faqs has more information.
