City of Rockford Hydrant Flushing begins April 18

The City of Rockford will be conducting the annual spring Hydrant Flushing and Maintenance Program beginning April 18, 2011. This process will be completed by May 6, 2011. During this time you may notice an occasional decrease in water pressure and possibly some slight cloudiness in the water. Most residents will see no change in their water supply. If you should notice a change in the appearance of your water, merely let the water run until it clears, usually within several minutes.

There is no cause for concern with respect to the safety of your water supply, and the City performs this service twice a year to maintain a safe, reliable and abundant supply of water for residents. This program also ensures that the fire hydrants in the City are operating correctly and available for use in an emergency.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Dennis Brinks at the City of Rockford at (616) 866-0560.
