[ARCHIVED] Updated Information on 03/10/14 Water Main Repair at 47th Street and Lawn Avenue

Last night the Village responded to a water main break located on 47th Street near Lawn Avenue. This break occurred between 4:30 -5:00 PM with responding crews conducting the repair starting around 6:30 PM and late into the evening.

An initial alert regarding the break was posted on the Village's website at approximately 4:47 PM. Due to the complexity of the repair a water shut off was required and crews were unable to notify additional staff for an updated post to the Village website for this repair.

Whenever possible Village staff will attempt to notify all affected residents when a water shut off occurs, but this unfortunately does not mean that a notification can be made in all instances. Public Works crews will go door-to-door to notify affected residents and updated information will be posted if it is available. Unfortunately that was not possible during this particular instance since all crews were needed on site to handle the repair.

The Municipal Services Department apologizes for the inconvenience. If residents have any additional questions, they can contact Matt Supert, the Director of Municipal Services at 708-246-1800 x 205 or at
