City of Kenosha Menu

The Kenosha Water Utility maintains over 3,000 fire hydrants throughout the city.  Each year, KWU flushes and maintains about 1,500 hydrants to ensure that they are in working order in case of a fire.  You may see KWU personnel flushing hydrants throughout the city during the spring, summer and fall.  Periodic flushing of the water main lines removes sediment and scale buildup, helps to maintain the water system infrastructure and assures continued high quality water.
