The City of Marengo will begin its fall hydrant flushing starting the week of October 11th . It will continue for at least 2 weeks.
This is done to remove accumulated mineral sediment and improve overall water quality.
While crews are flushing near your business or residence you may experience low water pressure or in some rare cases a complete loss of service. You may also experience a temporary discoloration in your water during this time.
If you experience this discoloration, please run your cold water at a high rate of speed until the water runs clear. Also, if you have a whole house filter system, please check your system for sediment build up because these systems become clogged during flushing. If you have any questions regarding hydrant flushing, please contact us at 815-568-2669
