Hydrant Flushing

Aug 22, 2015

The Village of Mt. Zion will continue to flush fire hydrants to remove materials that collect in the water mains through the months of September and October. Crews will work between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. daily.

During the hours of flushing, residents connected to the Village water system may experience temporary discolored water and lower than normal water pressure. The water discoloration is not a health risk. The Village of Mt. Zion recommends not doing laundry until the water runs clear, as the discoloration may stain laundry.
