The Hinsdale Fire Department, in conjunction with the Hinsdale Water Department, will be testing fire hydrants throughout the Village during the upcoming weeks. Residents are urged to slow down when approaching crews working around flowing fire hydrants, and to exercise caution when approaching standing and flowing water from fire hydrants throughout the Village.
Residents may notice a discoloration of the water during this process. Should this occur, residents are advised to run a faucet of cold water until it runs clear. This may take up to five minutes.
This testing is being performed in accordance with the Insurance Service Office and the National Fire Protection Association to ensure the available water supply for fire protection. Please call the Hinsdale Fire Department if you have any questions (630) 789-7060.
