Cloudy Water is Safe to Drink

Cloudy Water is Safe to Drink

The Village has received some questions about cloudy water.  The cloudiness is the result a number of things:

  1. Our shallow well has been running since it was rehabilitated earlier this year and it needs a break.
  2. Hydrants were flushed this week and we needed to switch over to our deep well to prevent triggering low water alarms at the treatment facility.
  3. The deep well water has been tested and is safe to drink.

The Village plans on rehabilitating our deep well in the near future.

HEY NEIGHBOR!

Looks like warm weather is here and with that warmer weather comes a burst of outdoor activity.  The Village has received a number of complaints from vacant property owners that they are finding debris, dirt piles, food waste, branches and unclaimed sports equipment, etc. on their properties.  The Village is asking everyone to be a good neighbor and NOT:

  1. Place debris, dump yard or food waste, tree branches and unwanted dirt from a home yard project; and/or
  2. Practice your chip shot and leave unclaimed golf balls in vacant lots; and/or
  3. Leave the fly balls that your junior leaguer hits over your head in the vacant lots; and/or
  4. Leave soccer goals or pitching/hitting nets on the property that is not yours.

As a friendly reminder, per Village Code Sections 5-2-2, 5-2-4, 5-2-7 through 5-2-10, disposing of garage refuse, anywhere other than a covered container or without the property owner’s permission can be issued a violation and fined, the Village would really like not to have to do that; so, if you have debris or tree branches, please take full advantage of the Waste Management’s weekly refuse and/or yard waste pick up.  Treat hunting for the golf balls or baseballs or softballs like an Easter egg hunt, the person that collects the most wins chocolate.

Thanks for being a good neighbor!

**Update, as of 05/24/21 – This is still planned for Wednesday, May 26, 2021**

 

Last year, due to COVID-19, the Village deferred a tree removal because it would require Commonwealth Edison shutting off the electricity for a number of hours to over 90 homes.  The tree’s condition has further deteriorated and the tree must be removed.  As a result of this need, the Village has scheduled this tree removal for Wednesday, May 26, 2021.  Please be advised that on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., there will be no power to many homes in town.  A list of those homes is linked below.
