Fire Hydrant & Valve Exercising Program

The Village of Woodridge Public Works Department will be conducting the annual fire hydrant and valve exercising inspection program. These activities will last from June 2023 through October 2023, weather permitting.

The Village exercises all of its hydrants and main line valves on a regular basis in order to remove any accumulation of sediment and other deposits that exist in the water main to improve the quality of water for the customers and to insure they are functioning properly. Residents may temporarily experience some discolored water and low water pressure. If this should occur, simply remove and clean any aerators. Then run the cold water for at least 5 minutes or until the line clears. 

The Village will post signs in the immediate area of flushing and valve exercising at least one day prior to these events. As a reminder, State Law prohibits parking within 15 feet of a fire hydrant. 

The Village is dedicated to providing water that is clean and safe to use. Educational material regarding water quality including the water quality report, lead in drinking water facts and water conservation can be found on the Village of Woodridge’s Public Works page here.

If you have any further questions, please contact the Public Works Department at 630-719-4753.
