The Village started taking supplemental water from CWLP at our Route 4 Connection this may cause stirring in the mains causing discoloration of the water. If water discoloration is noticed in your residence or building, stop all water use and wait, several hours may be required to rid the cloudiness from the water mains that serve your home or business. Turn on outside spigots, cold water bathtub faucets, flush toilets, and run a cycle through the washing machine to clear the water in your service line. Be certain discolored water is out of your water service line before using large amounts of water or doing laundry. Do not wash clothes or run a dishwasher during or immediately after flushing takes place. Washing clothes with discolored water can cause laundry stains. If laundry does become stained, do not dry it; request a free packet of Red-B-Gone laundry aide from the Village of Chatham, Dustin Patterson, at (217) 483-2451. This product may remove the stains. Discolored water poses no threat to your health. You may wish to avoid drinking or cooking with the water.
