CodeRed issued for residents near Somonauk Park

A CodeRed alert was issued for a small portion of Park Forest early this afternoon in the area of Central Park Avenue, Nauvoo Street, and Blackhawk Drive near Somonauk Park. The message to residents was as follows:

On Friday, October 14, residents may have disruptions in their water service between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm due to water main construction.

As a result of this temporary disruption in service, your water may become temporarily discolored after work completion. There are no known health risks associated with consuming discolored water caused from iron (rust) in the pipes, but Public Works recommends that you refrain from using discolored water until it runs clear. It is recommended that you not wash clothes when your area is being flushed. If your laundry becomes discolored, keep the items wet and pick-up a free bottle of Red-B-Gone at Village Hall.
