Nasty water in Woodstock

You may have noticed brown water in your sinks and toilets in Woodstock. It's there!

The First Street Water Treatment Plant is the culprit. Minerals are being stirred up in the pipes and the water is rusty looking.

You can call 815-338-6118 to report nasty water in your home, and Public Works will put your house on the list to run a hydrant near your home to try and clean the water.

A phone call to City Hall has been placed, with the suggestion to post a notice on the City's website at www.woodstockil.gov

I didn't ask whether the water was safe to drink. I didn't want to know. I'm not drinking it!
