FOX RIVER GROVE – Village Water Department employees this week will be flushing fire hydrants, according to a news release.

This is done twice a year to help ensure the hydrants are in good working order and to improve water quality.

During the process, there may be discoloration and pressure fluctuation. Residents are encouraged to let cold water run until it clears if water is discolored, the news release said.

Residents may want to avoid doing laundry when hydrant flushing is taking place. People should look for signs posted in their neighborhood.
