OFFICIAL NOTICE WATER DIVISION

UNIDIRECTIONAL HYDRANT FLUSHING 

The Village of Oak Lawn Water Division has contracted M.E. Simpson to perform necessary and preventative maintenance of the distribution system to ensure proper operation.

Accumulated sediment in the water main and fire hydrants will be flushed during normal business hours

Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

Beginning September 25th through September 26th 2017

While flushing is underway short temporary periods of low pressure and discolored water can be expected, but DOES NOT present a health hazard.

To restore clarity to your tap water use a faucet with the aerator removed, or use a laundry sink faucet without an aerator, and flow the cold water until it clears.

M.E. Simpson will give notification by placing signs in the parkways of the areas they are working in. Questions call Water Department 708-499-7747

                     Locations of system maintenance are:

                     95th Street to 99th Street, Nashville to Harlem.

                     Please refrain from doing Laundry during these times if Possible

 

Any questions regarding this Flush Program may be directed to the Water Division at 708-499-7747.

TERM:  April 1 through March 31

FEE:  $25 / AFTER NOV 1 RATE $12.50

TRANSFERABLE:  NO

CONTACT:  Alarm Annual Registration Permit Coordinator at (708) 499-7837. 

IMPORTANT:  Operation of an unlicensed alarm system may subject you to penalties including fines of up to $500.

False Alarms

False alarms place the lives and property of community members in jeopardy.  While police and firefighters are responding to alarms that turn out to be false, they are less likely available to respond to alarms that are valid.  In addition, the occupants are less likely to believe in their system with repeated false activations.

The Village of Oak Lawn encourages community members to research the proper usage of their alarm systems through manuals or by consulting their alarm dealers.
