Press Release - Hydrant Flushing

The Hinckley Fire Department will be conducting a water main flushing program to help maintain the water quality and to evaluate the amount of water available for firefighting purposes.

Fire personnel will be flowing hydrants from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.m. starting on Tuesday, May 28th.  The project should be completed by Friday, June 28th.  Flushing will only occur Monday through Friday.  Signs will be placed at the intersections of those streets where work is being performed.

Discoloration to water is likely to appear.  Residents are asked to check their cold water for discoloration prior to drawing water for cooking and for use in automatice washers and dishwashers.  The discoloration can be remedied by running the water for several minutes until the water is clear.

Residents can call (330) 278-2591 if they have any questions.
