Princeton to Begin City Wide Hydrant Flushing Next Week

In preparation for semi-annual water main flushing, the City of Princeton Water Department has increased chlorine levels.  During this time you may notice a slightly stronger chlorine odor.  If you find this odor objectionable for drinking you may keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator and the chlorine will dissipate after a few minutes.

City wide hydrant flushing on Monday, April 26.  During this time customers may experience a chlorine odor, cloudy or discolored water and brief periods of low water pressure.

Residents are urged to be cautious near open fire hydrants.  If you have any questions, call the Princeton Water Plant at 815-872-0811 ext. 1304.
