Trick-or-treat hours in Coal City and Diamond are set for Monday, Oct. 31 from 4-7 p.m. Carbon Hill trick-or-treating... From where do Braidwood homes get their water, from a treatment plant or wells? Is it contaminated with tritium? The CBS Ch.2 news story the other night made it sound as if living in Braidwood was a invitation to cancer.

Can someone please tell me what is going on with the water in Diamond???? When I take a shower or just wash my hands, the water feels slimey.

They switched over to a new filtering system. They said there would be little difference but I've noticed the same thing as you. I also do not like the new taste even after it is filtered through my frig. I started buying bottled.

I hope it is just a matter of adjusting it somehow.

Water straight from the sewer plant to your tap. Enjoy.
