FIRE HYDRANT SANDBLASTING & PAINTING

The contractor needs access to 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 and 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 Tuesday, August 4th starting at 5:30am and should only take a couple hours to complete sandblasting, priming. Final coats of paint will be done 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 chris.dufort@elmhurst.org.
