The Village is aware of recent complaints of “cloudy” drinking water. This is likely due to air being trapped in the system and is a temporary condition. The water treatment plant has currently two (2) older air release valves,-the Village is the process of replacing these values and is adding an additional air release valve to further alleviate the issue. The process to replace the valve may take up to four (4) weeks depending on the availability of the valves. The Village has the water tested by an IEPA approved laboratory and the required daily chlorine residual testing and the monthly coliform (bacteria) testing; all our water tests have come back well within IEPA safe drinking water parameters.
The Village will keep residents informed of the progress of valve replacement/installation. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Village at 815-827-3309.
