Spring 2018 Full System Hydrant Flushing Begins Monday, March 19th

Crystal Lake – Beginning the week of March 19th, the Public Works Department will start the annual fire hydrant flushing program. Over 3,000 fire hydrants will be flushed throughout the City. Flushing ensures the hydrants are operating properly and there is sufficient water flow and pressure for the Crystal Lake Fire and Rescue Department if needed. In addition, flushing helps reduce naturally occurring sediment found within underground pipes connected to the fire hydrant. This program is anticipated to be complete in early May.
