The City of Rock Island’s Public Works Department will begin the Fire
Hydrant Flushing Program on Monday, September 18, 2017, at 7:00 a.m. Crews will be flushing hydrants for
approximately a four week period.
The purpose of this program is to help maintain water quality standards
and the fire protection system. Citizens
may experience brief periods of discolored water or low pressure which is
normal during flushing operations.
