July 1- For Immediate Release

Construction crews working on water main improvements associated with the Matteson Street Road Construction Project will begin work on W. Corey (between Walker Street and Matteson Street) on Tuesday July 5th or Wednesday July 6th. The Southwest portion of the City may experience interruptions of water service during the afternoon on Tuesday July 5th or during the morning of Wednesday July 6th, in order to perform work on the main.

As part of the Matteson Street Construction project, water main on Rudd, W. Corey, and S. Matteson will be upgraded to an 8-inch main from 4-inch main, improving water flow.  These shut offs may affect several blocks in the Southwest portion of the City.  If everything goes smoothly it will only last a couple of hours.  If you notice any discoloration in your water after the water has been restored, please flush the taps in your home until they run clear. 

Please check the City’s Facebook page ( or the City’s website ( for further updates.
