Geneva to conduct water flow tests

GENEVA – The city of Geneva will be conducting water flow tests from the Fox River to Randall Road between 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday to Thursday, Sept. 17 to 19.

The testing provides valuable information to Geneva’s Fire and Water departments on water supplies available for firefighters and where water infrastructure upgrades may be needed.

Geneva residents living on the west side might experience rusty water during or immediately after the testing. The water is safe to drink, but residents are encouraged to let their faucets run for a few minutes to flush them out if they notice any discoloration.

Residents should refrain from doing laundry until the water is clear. In the event rusty water discolors clothing, residents should keep the clothing wet and call the Geneva Public Works Department at 630-232-1501 to request a rust-removing solution packet.

For information, call Geneva Fire Chief Steve Olson or Deputy Fire Chief Jerry Koster at 630-232-2530.
