Lombard Public Works crews began performing annual fall fire hydrant maintenance this week. (Week of August 10) Workers will visit more than 900 hydrants over the course of a six week period.
The fire hydrant maintenance program is a vital part of the Village’s water pumping and water distribution system maintenance schedule. This process ensures that Lombard residents are receiving the highest quality drinking water in their homes and that fire hydrants can be operated by the Fire Department and Village repair crews in a time of need.
During hydrant maintenance, each hydrant is thoroughly inspected and port caps are oiled and greased to ensure proper operability. Crews may also flow specific hydrants in order to pull fresh water into the distribution system. During the six week project, maintenance crews will be focusing their efforts in northern Lombard, between Maple Ave., and the Village’s northern border. Please refer to the associated map for further details.
Questions regarding the hydrant maintenance program should be directed to the Public Works Department at (630) 620-5740, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
