Hydrant Flushing Notice


 As part of our annual maintenance, Public Works employees will be flushing fire hydrants on September 10th & 11th between the hours of 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.  If you are on Highway 18 the hydrants will be flushed on September 12th between the hours of 8:00 and Noon.    

Because water mains are typically looped together, you may notice that your service pressure is affected even if hydrants are being flushed several blocks away.

During the flushing process, there may be a slight discoloration of the water caused by sediment or rust being flushed from the water mains.  If you do experience discoloration in your water service, please don’t be alarmed your water will clear up once it is run for a short time.  Should you experience rusty colored water, we suggest you run the cold water from the faucet nearest to the water meter (laundry tub, outside faucet) to flush the service.  We suggest that on days we flush, you may not want to do laundry during the hours listed above.  Possible discoloration in the water can stain light colored clothing.

Please note that your water is safe for all other uses and that slightly higher amounts of chlorine are added to the system during this maintenance.

The Village performs annual flushing of hydrants for several reasons which includes;

1.     Safety – to insure proper operation of each hydrant.

2.     To clean out rust and sediment that may settle naturally in the system piping.

3.     To exercise the hydrants and to do preventive maintenance. 

If you have any questions regarding this procedure or if you would like to know where we are I the Village, please call (608) 778-9799.

Thank you for you cooperation.

              Please be advised of the following requirements:

             No person shall be allowed to appear before the Board of Review, to testify to the Board by telephone or to contest the amount of any assessment of real or personal property if the person has refused a reasonable written request by certified mail of the Assessor to view such property.

             No person may appear before the Board of Review, testify to the Board by telephone or contest the amount of any assessment unless, at least 48 hours before the first meeting of the Board or at least 48 hours before the objection is heard if the objection is allowed because the person has been granted a waiver of the 48-hour notice of intent to file a written objection by appearing before the Board during the first two hours of the meeting and showing good cause for failure to meet the 48-hour notice requirement and files a written objection, that person provides to the Clerk of the Board of Review notice as to whether the person will ask for removal of any Board members and, if so, which member will be removed and the person’s reasonable estimate of the length of time that the hearing will take.
