LITH schedules hydrant flushing through April 26

The Lake in the Hills Public Works Department has scheduled system-wide hydrant flushing for this week and next week.

Areas west of Randall Road will have hydrant flushing this week. All remaining areas east of Randall Road will have hydrant flushing the week of April 22. All flushing is scheduled to be completed by April 26, the village said in a news release. Hydrant flushing is not expected to take place on weekends or after 6 p.m. on weekdays.

Hydrant flushing is meant to improve water quality throughout the village. Signs will be posted at the main entrance of subdivisions at least 12 hours prior to flushing and be removed when work in the subdivision is complete.

The village recommends that residents refrain from doing laundry during times in which flushing occurs in their subdivision.
