[ARCHIVED] Fire Hydrant Sand Blasting & Painting

Fire hydrant sanding and reblasting

The City of Elmhurst is in the second year of a four year contract with “Go Painters of Melrose Park, IL” to sandblast, prime and paint every fire hydrant in the city that are in need of cosmetic maintenance and color coding.

The contractor needs access to all of the fire hydrants in the central business district to complete this process. An area around the fire hydrant will be coned off and an enclosure will be used to sandblast, prime & paint each hydrant to ensure the area is clear of debris and will take 8 to 10 minutes per hydrant per task. Please refer to the attached project map of the streets and hydrants to be painted.

The work is scheduled to take place on Thursday June 27th starting at 5:30am and should only take a couple hours to complete sandblasting, priming and first coat of paint. The final coat will be completed the next day. City staff will also be assisting the contractor during the process.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and cooperation.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Chris Dufort, Superintendent of Water/Wastewater Distribution & Collection, at (630) 530-3036 or email
