Lombard Public Works crews will be performing annual hydrant maintenance on over 900 hydrants over a three-week period beginning Monday, May 3rd, 2021. This work will be completed in the late afternoon/early evening hours and will not cause any disruption to water service to residents or businesses.
The hydrant maintenance program is a vital part of the Village’s water pumping and water distribution system maintenance program. During hydrant maintenance each hydrant is thoroughly inspected, oiled, and port caps are greased to ensure proper operability. This process continues to ensure that hydrants can be operated by the Fire Department and Public Works Utilities Division crews in the event of a fire emergency or routine maintenance to the water system.
Village crews will be focusing their efforts from the Illinois Prairie Path to the north limits of Lombard including the Industrial Park north of North Avenue. 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 via email at email@example.com..
