The Village of Montgomery Public Works Department will be flushing water mains in the village and unincorporated Boulder Hill subdivision during the weeks of Sept. 9, 16 and 23.
The procedure clears sediment from the water distribution lines and helps maintain water quality, village officials said.
Residents are encouraged to refrain from washing laundry when flushing is done in or near their neighborhoods 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 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily according to the following schedule:
Week of Sept. 9
Areas east of Orchard Road to Hill Avenue (includes Parkview Estates) and north of Route 30 (Seasons Ridge) up to Ashland Avenue.
Week of Sept. 16
In unincorporated Boulder Hill, south of Route 30 to Circle Drive West and from Route 25 to Douglas Road; within the village of Montgomery, Lakewood Creek West, Fairfield Way and Foxmoor. Due to ongoing water main replacement hydrant flushing may be postponed in some areas of Boulder Hill Subdivision.
Week of Sept. 23
Subdivisions west of Orchard Road to Dickson Road and from Galena Road to Jericho Road, including Montgomery Crossings, Lakewood Creek, Blackberry Crossing, Blackberry Crossing West, Huntington Chase, Balmorea, Orchard Prairie North, and Saratoga Springs.
