The bowl and the tank must be disinfected after cleaning by adding bleach. The bleach must be allowed to sit for at least one-half hour. This procedure may have to be repeated several times. It is important that all areas with fungal growth be treated at the same time to eliminate cross contamination.
The presence of fungi in the toilet bowl should not be interpreted as a problem with the drinking water quality. It is very similar to leaving a piece of moist bread on the kitchen counter, sooner or later it will support mold growth. This does not mean the bread was bad, only that when it was left open to the environment it will support growth.
Routine cleaning will not eliminate this organism. Cleaning must be followed by disinfection using a bleach water mixture. All areas must be disinfected to reduce the chance of growth. Serratia will not survive in chlorinated drinking water.
Refrain from mowing, if possible, until the grass is at least 3” high. New grass should be mowed with the mower at a high setting. Ideally only 1/3 of the total height of the grass should be removed during a mowing. Once the grass is well established and before mowing, the netting (if used) should be gently removed. Do not fertilize or use weed control products until the restored area has been mowed three times. The grass needs to establish strong enough roots to withstand any type of chemical application.
Please remember that these are basic guidelines. Watering frequency needs to adapt to weather and turf conditions. If the weather is very hot and dry, or if the new grass shows signs of stress, it may be necessary to increase watering. If the weather is rainy, then watering frequency needs to be reduced.
Please note: If you do install a water filter, follow the operating and maintenance instructions very carefully. An improperly installed and/or maintained filter can adversely affect the water quality. The water provided by the Village of Lombard meets all State and Federal drinking water standards.
Most complaints generally are that the water has an earthy, musty smell and taste. We believe the earthy, musty taste and odor of the drinking water is the result of compounds produced by blue-green algae and other vegetation found in Lake Michigan. Taste and odors may be more noticeable when the lake water gets warmer. Refrigerating the water will minimize the taste and odors. The presence of taste and odors does not affect the safety of the drinking water. The Chicago Water Department adds powdered activated carbon (PAC) to the water at the Jardine Water Purification Plant. The application rate of PAC is based upon the concentration of water vegetation and the number of taste and odor complaints.
Residents are urged to contact the Village with any taste and odor complaints. They are forwarded to the DuPage Water Commission, who then logs them with the Jardine Plant. When there is a rise in complaints, they increase their treatment. But because of the distance, it takes approximately 24 hours for the DuPage Water Commission to receive the water. It then takes another 24 hours to get into our water supply. We also suggest residents refrigerate their drinking water. The decreased temperature helps alleviate the problem.
Water softening is the process of removing the minerals from the water and is commonly accomplished by either reverse osmosis filtration or ion exchange. Reverse osmosis filtration units can handle only small volumes of water and is usually performed at a single point of use, such as the kitchen sink. Ion exchange units can handle large volumes of water and are usually installed on the incoming water supply line to a property. Ion exchange systems exchange sodium ions for the calcium and magnesium ions in the water. Medical studies show that people who live in areas with hard water have reduced occurrences of cardiovascular illness compared to people who live in areas with soft water. You should consult your physician before making artificially softened water your primary source of drinking water.
Additionally, from May 15 - September 15 water used for sprinkling or irrigation of lawns or gardens is only allowed from 7 a.m. - 11 a.m., and from 7 p.m. - 11 p.m.
To heat the pipe you can use an electric heating pad wrapped around the pipe, a hair dryer, a portable space heater (kept away from flammable materials), or wrapping the pipe with towels soaked in hot water. Do not use a blowtorch, kerosene or propane heater, charcoal stove or other open flame device. A blowtorch can cause the water in the pipe to boil which can cause the pipe to burst.
