The Village of Montgomery Public Works Department crews will be flushing water mains in the village and unincorporated Boulder Hill subdivision during the weeks of May 12 and 19. This procedure clears sediment from the water distribution line, helps maintain water quality, and verifies proper operation of the hydrants.
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. Residents should also run their cold water taps first to clean out any sediment that may enter the water lines inside the homes. Public works crews will flush hydrants from approximately 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily according to the following schedule:
Week of May 12: Areas east of Orchard Road to Hill Avenue (includes Parkview Estates) and north of Route 30 (Seasons Ridge) up to Ashland Avenue.
Week of May 19: In unincorporated Boulder Hill, south of Route 30 to Circle Drive West and from Route 25 to Douglas Road.
If you have any questions about the hydrant flushing program, or any other public works service, please contact the public works department at 630-896-9241.
