Arlington Heights Fire Hydrant Flushing April 25 through May 6, 2016

Fire hydrant flushing is scheduled to start on April 25 and will run through May 6. Each year, the Village of Arlington Heights Public Works Staff operates, flushes, and maintains 3,300 public and 850 private fire hydrants. The personnel generally work in consecutive 12 hour shifts to rapidly facilitate this event with minimal inconvenience to Arlington Heights residents.

Some benefits that are generated from this scheduled operation and maintenance are:
1) Every public fire hydrant is operated and maintained. If it cannot be maintained, it is marked out of service and the emergency response agencies are notified. The hydrant is then brought back into service as soon as possible.

2) Every private hydrant is operated and if maintenance is necessary, appropriate owners and emergency agencies are promptly notified and the hydrant is marked as out of service. Maintenance is monitored until complete.

3) Water is measured in gallons per minute in order to document flow for the Fire Department.
