Rochelle Municipal Utilities is continuing their monthly hydrant flushing project. The fire hydrants are opened and allowed to run in an effort to circulate water in the underground water mains. RMU Water Operators will be flushing hydrants today from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm in the center of town.
RMU reminds water service customers that they may experience some discoloration in the water supply for a short period of time following the work. We advise customers to open cold water faucets for several minutes until the water becomes clear to insure all of the discoloration has been removed. Customers are reminded not to launder clothing in water that has been discolored, since the clothing may become stained.
If you have any questions, please contact RMU Customer Service at 815-562-4155
