Carbondale Fire Department Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant flushing will continue on Monday, April 24th. The Fire Department will run three crews from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. We will flush on the west side west of Tower Road and south of W. Murphysboro Road going north as well as between S. Oakland Avenue and S. Illinois Avenue north of W. Sycamore Street and on the east side between S. Wall Street and S. Washington Street north of E. Grand Avenue going north. Customers may notice a change in water pressure and possible discoloration. The water is safe to drink. However, if your water is discolored, wait a few hours before doing laundry. If you have water related questions, please call 457-3240.

Daily updates for locations of flushing will be available on City Vision Channel 16 and the City’s web site at
