WOODSTOCK – The fall 2013 hydrant flushing in the city of Woodstock has been scheduled for Tuesday through Sept. 11 for areas west of Route 47 and for Sept. 12 through Sept. 20 for areas east of Route 47.

No hydrant flushing will take place Saturdays or Sundays.

During these three weeks, some loss of pressure and discoloration of water will occur. This condition will not present any health hazards and will be temporary.

Due to this discoloration, residents are urged to check their water quality before doing laundry and to avoid doing laundry when hydrants are being flushed in the area.

For information about hydrant flushing, or when flushing will occur in a specific neighborhood, contact the Department of Public Works at 815-338-6118 or email pwdept@woodstockil.gov.
