It’s Fall and the Forest Park Fire Department has started their biannual fire hydrant flushing program. This operation allows us to check the functionality of all of the village’s fire hydrants, as well as allowing us to flush out water mains regularly in order to provide the best quality water year-round to our residents.
What to expect? You may see:
- Big Red Fire Trucks throughout town
- A drop in water pressure –>This is normal in areas with smaller water mains. Once they leave your area, system pressure will return to normal
- A slight discoloration of your water in your home. –>If this is apparent, please refrain from doing laundry and let your faucets run until the water has become clear
We apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you and if you have any questions, please contact the Fire Dept at 708.366.1234
