Lombard Public Works will begin its annual hydrant maintenance program on over 900 hydrants beginning Monday, April 25, 2022. Crews will complete maintenance work in the late afternoon/early evening hours over a three-week period and will not cause any disruption to water service to residents or businesses.
The hydrant maintenance program is a vital element 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 ensures 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.
