anyone else notice a strong clorine smell in Hampton Park water lately? Or why it might be so?

Since: Mar 14

They probably added chlorine to kill something that shouldn't be there. This happens from time to time with all public water systems.

Maybe they should hire a real water superintendent, while they're at it maybe hire someone who can fixed the streets. Instead of wasting money on a new recreation center. Don't tell me it's due to winter.

You sound like a disgruntled former village employee or current one. Or maybe you are a friend of one... like maybe the one that didn't get the "water superintendent" job? Or maybe one that is no longer working there?

As for the streets, our village is fixing far more roads than most of the surrounding communities. Also our streets are in much better condition. Stop making up things!

Finally stop misleading people about the new event center. That was paid for using TIF dollars that are for redevelopment of that specific area and can't be spent fixing streets in other parts of the community. Oh and last time I checked the place has been bringing people in from all over Illinois. Just like it was planned to do.

Oh wrong again. But that seems to be the case with you and your little sad group. Blame the rest of the world and if that doesn't work just make crap up.

There are several houses on the 400 block of Kenyon Ave.mthat are having serious problems with a lot of rust (iron) in the water.
I'm not talking about the normal iron levels. I am referring to water that at times is as bad as when they flush fire hydrants.
The old superintendent never did anything more than flush our hydrants a couple extra times. However, the didn't ever fix the problem.
Our toilet, showers, sinks, clothes etc are all stained from this rust in our water. Neighbors on the odd side of Kenyon do not have this problem.
I wonder if houses on the 400 block of Laurel are having the same problems.
No matter what I do with our white laundry, it's dark yellow. Nothing gets it out, or keeps it out.
I would love to stop spending so much money on toxic cleaners. Between the hardness level (it's extra hard, not like most of the other wells around town), and the rusty water, I am so sick of it. I know my neighbors are too.
It would be nice if the village would figure out what is causing the high iron levels just around where I live, and fix it!

It's called old pipes in your house. Your house is OLD.

im not a Plumber but since you live in the Hampton Park section of town which is really old, have you ever considered that it is your pipes, not the water that need to be replaced ?

Noel,
Please re-read what I wrote.
I explained this isn't the normal rust that is in our town's water. It happened all of a sudden a few years ago, to (only) several houses on the 400 block of Kenyon.
Please don't just assume the people that live in these several houses are morons, because it has NOTHING to do with our houses being old.
If you are going to make stupid comments, do it somewhere else.
I have no time for morons.

Please try to understand this.
A few years ago 5 houses on this block all of a sudden had yellow to orange water coming out of our faucets, showers, toilets and hoses outside. This is not just one house's pipes.
This did not happen slowly over time.
It is NOT old pipes.
Geez people read before you comment!

FYI Rosa...
I never once said our water needs replacing.
If 5 houses in a row all of a sudden have dark yellow, to orange water that stinks of iron, yet no houses around them have this problem, what makes you think it is the individual house's pipes that need replacing?
Wouldn't it make more sense that since all these houses on the block are receiving the exact same water source, yet only several houses in a row are having this problem, that it might be the TOWN'S water main in this one area?

Or it's that all the houses are the same age? Sounds like you just don'the want to replace your old pipes.

Wow, you really are a moron.
The purpose of posting to this was to see (if you might have read the first post about the rusty water), was to find out if others on Laurel (behind Kenyon) were having these same issues.
When certain water mains have problems, ONLY certain houses are affected.
You think I'm the idiot? LOL
You're the one who can't understand plain English.
If you have nothing intelligent to say, please don't say anything at all.
