The City of Highwood Water Department would like to thank all the residents and businesses affected by the water main projects within the City. We thank you for your patience and cooperation throughout our construction season. The Highwood Avenue, Pleasant Avenue and North Avenue street projects are scheduled for completion in November 2015. The City is committed to maintaining a work site which is safe and clean. However, dust, noise and heavy equipment are intrusive but common elements of construction and we ask for your patience during the remainder of the project.
Once the water main is either installed or completely lined, the crews begin to chlorinate the infrastructure. After water service is restored, periodic discoloration including rust and cloudiness in the water delivered to customers may occur.
Please know, this is only an advisory message. No boil order is required. Should you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the City at 847.432.1924.
