Fire Hydrant Flushing October 2022

Annual Fall Hydrant Maintenance Program

Fire hydrant and water main flushing will occur from October 11th through October 31st, 2022 in the City of Freeport. Flushing will be conducted through the hours of 6:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.

During flushing, residents may experience rusty or cloudy colored water. While the water is safe, residents should run their bathtub water for 5 to 10 minutes prior to washing laundry during this time to avoid staining of clothes.

If water discoloration persists at your location for more than 24 hours, city crews will re-flush the water mains that service your area. If this occurs, please call the numbers below, leaving your street address and flushing request:

From 7 A.M. to 3 P.M., please call Freeport Water & Sewer Dispatch at 815-235-8210

During evening hours, please call the Freeport Water Plant at 815-233-0711
