A CodeRed alert was issued this afternoon for residents in the area of:

Springfield from Illinois to Indiana
Indiana from Douglas to Springfield

The message to residents was as follows:

On Tuesday, October 18, residents may have disruptions in their water service between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. due to water main construction.

More information:

As a result of this temporary disruption in service, your water may become temporarily discolored after work completion. There are no known health risks associated with consuming discolored water caused from iron (rust) in the pipes, but Public Works recommends that you refrain from using discolored water until it runs clear. It is recommended that you not wash clothes when your area is being flushed. If your laundry becomes discolored, keep the items wet and pick-up a free bottle of Red-B-Gone at Village Hall.
