Does Your Water Look or Taste Funny?

If you live in Round Lake Beach you may experience some discoloration or even a chlorine taste in your water due to hydrant flushing that will be going on from April 15th through May 15th. The water still meets the EPA standards for drinking water but may taste like you swallowed some swimming pool water (remember that chlorine taste?). In the past many have noticed this chlorinated smell when they are running water after a main break but it is an acceptable method for removing impurities caused by main breaks or the release of particles stuck to the underground pipes when a large amount of water is moved through them as in hydrant flushing.

If you have any concerns or questions feel free to contact the Round Lake Beach Public Works Department at (847) 546-8752
