City of Princeton will flush water mains at various times over two-week period

PRINCETON — The city of Princeton will conduct semi-annual water main flushing beginning Monday, Oct. 14 and lasting for approximately two weeks.

In preparation for this event, the water department has increased chlorine levels to the water. During this time residents may notice a slightly stronger odor of chlorine. Water for drinking may be kept in a pitcher in the refrigerator and the chlorine will dissipate after just a few minutes.

The city will conduct the citywide hydrant flushing between the hours of 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please be cautious near open fire hydrants. If you have any questions, feel free to call the Princeton water plant at (815) 872-0811 ext. 1304.
