Zone 12: All Areas South of Theodore


Hydrant flushing project will be completed by 4am Friday November 20th.

All fire hydrants in the City of Crest Hill Water System will be flushed to improve water quality and check operation of the hydrants.


The hydrants will be flushed starting with zone 1 working toward zone 12 and be done between 9pm and 6am each night. Project is anticipated to last no later than November 20th, 2015.


Please see City Website at  for more information related to zones.


Customers may notice some water discoloration during the flushing. We ask you to please check your water prior to using water on the day hydrants in your area are being flushed. Though the water may be discolored, it is safe to use.
