Spring Fire Hydrant Flushing
The Niles Fire Department will be conducting bi-annual city-wide hydrant flushing, 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, May 18th 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.
