The Village of Sugar Grove will be performing hydrant flushing the weeks of April 5 and 12.

The Public Works Utilities Division performs hydrant flushing twice a year as part of the regular maintenance to the Village water distribution system. By simply flushing hydrants to allow water to flow rapidly through them, water quality is improved and mineral build-up in the water mains is minimized. Hydrant flushing also ensures that hydrants are ready for emergency use.

Please note that hydrant flushing could temporarily cause rusty-looking water, even for homes outside the particular flushing area. The discoloration is caused by minerals that get stirred up in the water mains. Residents are encouraged to refrain from washing laundry when flushing is done in or near their neighborhood as the temporarily discolored water may cause laundry staining.
