Winter Water Conservation Tips

Of course, we should be trying to conserve water year-round, but here are some ways to specifically prepare for wintertime water wasters.

Coyote Mating Season 
The sighting of coyotes in Elmhurst has been brought to the attention of the City of Elmhurst and the Elmhurst Police Department. In the Midwest, coyotes breed from January through March which increases the likelihood of seeing them, often in pairs, during the daytime.

Dig Out Fire Hydrants 
The Elmhurst Fire Department is urging residents to help ensure quick access to hydrants in the event on an emergency.
In situations where minutes are crucial, digging out a fire hydrant can be life saving by allowing quick access to first responders. A snow pact hydrant is also more likely to freeze. Taking a few minutes to clear the snow around a fire hydrant will enhance the ability to quickly locate and access the hydrant. Accessibility and functionality of hydrants are vital to firefighter operations.
