Annual Hydrant Flushing

Monday, April 28, 2014, Rochelle Municipal Utilities will begin their annual hydrant flushing project.  The fire hydrants are opened and allowed to run in an effort to circulate water in the underground water mains.  It will take approximately three weeks to complete the entire system.  RMU Water Operators will be flushing the hydrants on Monday through Friday each week from 7:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.

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 would like to see what area of town is affected, we will post a daily notice on our web site at  If you have any questions, please contact RMU Customer Service at 815-562-4155.
