  • PLEASE WATCH FOR SIGNS IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD. Areas scheduled for flushing will have signs posted at least 24 hours in advance to inform residents. 
  • During and after flushing, if you encounter discolored water, please open a cold water tap and let the water run for 5 minutes.  If the water does not run clear after 5 minutes, shut the water off, wait 30-45 minutes and repeat.  Do not run water constantly for hours, as this is wasteful and ineffective.
  • If possible, avoid running hot water taps while the water is discolored.  This will help keep sediment from settling in your water heater.
  • To avoid staining, do not wash clothes when flushing is occurring in your area, or any time water is discolored.

Any questions regarding water main flushing can be directed to the Village of Monee Public Works Department at 708-534-8306.
