May 26, 2016 11:27AM ● By Neighbors Magazines
The St. Charles Fire Department will be conducting hydrant flow tests on Wednesday June 1 in the Northeast quadrant of the city. Thursday, June 2 in the Northwest and Southwest quadrants and Friday, June 3 in the Southeast quadrant and the central downtown areas. Testing will begin at approximately 7:30am and finish by 3:30pm the same day.  Residents may experience rust in the water during or immediately after the testing procedure.  The water is safe; however you may want to refrain from doing laundry until the  water is clear.  In the event rusty water discolors clothes while being laundered, please be sure to keep the clothing wet, and contact the Public Works Department at 377-4405 to request a rust removing solution packet. It is advised that drivers use caution in driving through areas being flushed due to water that may be on the pavement.
