Temporary water outage on April 3 near Illinois School

On Monday, April 3, between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m., residents on the following streets may experience a disruption in water service due to water main replacement work happening in their area:

Illinois Street (near Illinois School)
Sandburg Street (between Illinois and Thomas)
Rutledge Street (between Illinois and Thomas)

Residents on Berry Street and Indiana Street could be impacted by this work.

After water service is restored, some residents may experience discoloration for up to 24 hours. 

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.
