Attention Residents -

Fire Hydrant Flushing Notification

The Village of Pecatonica Public Works Department will be flushing fire hydrants, beginning Tuesday, November 1, 2022 and ending Friday November 4, 2022.

Flushing of the fire hydrants ensures their safe and reliable operation and also removes the accumulation of natural deposits in the water mains. Flushing of iron mains may cause temporary discoloration of the water supplied to your home. This water is safe for drinking and cooking, but may stain light colored clothes during washing. Please check your faucets and water fixtures for discoloration before starting your wash.

If you notice discoloration in your water you can clear your system by simply running your water for at least five minutes.

The Village apologizes for any inconvenience caused by the routine flushing of the water system. Any questions, please call 815.239.2310.
