The Village of Mt. Zion will continue to flush fire hydrants to remove materials that collect in the water mains. The East Side of State Highway 121 will be flushed August 3-14, 2015. Crews will work between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

During the hours of flushing, residents connected to the Village water system may experience temporary discolored water and lower than normal water pressure.
