Public Works inspecting Highland water tank next week, residents could see harmless cloudy water

The Village of Lombard's Public Works Department will be performing an inspection of the Highland Avenue elevated water storage tank located at 2020 S Highland Ave during the week of June 2 through June 9.

During this inspection, the tank will be isolated from the water distribution system, drained, and inspected. These inspections are done every three to five years and are for the purpose of finding potential structural damage and equipment failures all to ensure the operational efficiency of the water distribution system.

During this time, residents might see some pressure fluctuations or cloudy water, according to Public Works. These observations are normal and do not affect the quality of the water. Cloudy or “milky” water is an effect of undissolved oxygen in the water and will dissipate in a minute or so if left to stand in a glass. There are no effects to the quality of the water and is safe to consume.
