Your water is safe to drink during and after hydrant flushing. Occasionally, water becomes discolored after hydrant flushing. If this happens, run your cold water tap for a few minutes until the water clears. If it doesn't clear the first time, wait a few minutes and run the water again. You should avoid washing clothes until the water clears.
If you have any questions on the hydrant flushing , please call the Utility Office at 262-569-2196.
The periodic flushing of hydrants and mains occurs in spring (May) and fall (September/Oct) and continues for several weeks as crews work through each hydrant zone (1-4). Please see map below with zone details.
