07-16-19 Foggy Water – 2019 Streets Infrastructure Project

It has come to my attention that some of our residents may have their water coming out of some faucets looking “foggy” (see picture). This is nothing to be concerned about as it is only air in the lines. Most likely from the water having been off during the recent construction and new mains being installed. It will eventually clear up once the air is out of the lines. To get the air out quicker, you can turn on your faucets and let them run for a few minutes.

If you have any questions contact the Village Clerk at 608-924-5881 or the Public Works Director at 608-669-0977.
