Elevated tower maintenance is moving along slowly since we have experienced such wet and cold weather lately. The maintenance crew thinks they will still be working on the tower for about 4 more weeks.
We have received several inquiries regarding the water running from a couple of hydrants. This water release is necessary to maintain pressure in our distribution system so delivery to each Village residence is not disrupted and water line breaks do not happen during this time. The fluctuation of water pressure in the water lines would or could cause a water line to break or leak. Water from one of the hydrants is being recycled back to the ground storage tank. Water loss from the other 2 hydrants is at the lowest possible level we can go without disrupting or impacting the distribution line pressure.
