Resident near S. Orchard and Osage to experience water disruption Tuesday

Residents in the area of South Orchard Drive and Osage Street in Park Forest will be without water service on Tuesday, April 18, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., due to water main replacement.

As a result of this temporary disruption in service, residents in the impacted area may experience water discoloration that should run clear after several seconds of being run. There are no known health risks associated with consuming discolored water caused from iron (rust) in the pipes, but Park Forest's Public Works Department recommends that you refrain from using discolored water until it runs clear. It is also recommended that you not wash clothes when water discoloration is possible. If your laundry becomes discolored, keep the items wet and pick-up a free bottle of Red-B-Gone at Village Hall.

The latest temporary water shutdown is one of the few remaining planned interruptions as part of a comprehensive construction project to replace water main in town which began in August.

For questions, call 708-503-7702.
