Niles Fire Hydrant Flushing

The Niles Fire Department will be conducting a city-wide hydrant flushing program, in an effort to help maintain the water quality and evaluate the effectiveness of all hydrants serviced by The City of Niles. The flushing program will begin on Monday, October 1st and is expected to last two-three weeks, weather permitting. Three crews will be flushing hydrants in various areas each day.

When hydrant flushing is occurring in your neighborhood, residents may experience low water pressure and discoloration may appear in your water for a short amount of time. Please run your COLD water, for a short period, until the discoloration disappears.
