The Northwest quadrant grouping of fire hydrants in the Village has a history of pressure and fire flow deficiencies. This is primarily due to the age of the water mains and decreased capacity from tuberculation, which increases resistance to the flow of water. In April 2018, the Village contracted with Stanley Consultants to complete a hydraulic model of the Village’s entire water system. They found that replacing the water main on Brier Street, Maclean Avenue, and Park Drive with a new 8” water main will improve the flow rate of water to fire hydrants.
