Pinckneyville to flush fire hydrants June 17-18 | Community Spirit
PERRY COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - The Pinckneyville Fire Department, in cooperation with the Utility Department, will be flushing fire hydrants Monday, June 17 from 6 p.m. until about 10:30 p.m. and again on Tuesday, June 18 from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
They say fire hydrant flushing is done to help eliminate mineral content from the town's water suplly. The maintenance procedure is also needed to clean the water mains and keep each fire hydrant operating well.
Residents my experience rusty water. Despite the discoloration, they say drinking the water is not a safety concern.
If you have any questions, you can call the Utility Department at 357-5214.
