VILLAGE UPDATES:

4/10/14 - As you might know, the Village has been seeking voluntary compliance from our residents to place their house number on their homes, and that the numbers are visible from the street to comply with Village Ordinance. Over the past year, we have used Village Board meetings, Village Website, Village Newsletter, and the local newspapers to make this requirement known. The placing of the house number on mailboxes next to the street does not comply with our Ordinance.

Placing your house number on your home will help our police, public works, fire department, ambulances and commercial delivery vehicles in locating your home quickly and efficiently. In case of an emergency, seconds can be critical, and an inability of our first responders to quickly locate your home could have devastating results.

We would much rather have compliance with the ordinance rather than enforcement and are seeking your assistance in this project.

4/9/14 - The Village will no longer be using the post cards for water billing as we are having problems with the automated post office systems. We will be switching over to an envelope system starting the next billing cycle, so please look for then new water bill.

4/4/14 - The Village is thinking of offering the option to have Village water bills emailed to our residents and we would like to get a feel for how many residents would use this service. Keep in mind that this is an either or situation - if you get a bill emailed you would no longer get a printed bill. You would pick either email or printed. If you know of any other neighbors that you can pass this on to please do so! All input would be appreciated. Please have them email me back at:

    3/20/14 - The Village of Coal Valley will be conducting hydrant flushing April 14th through April 25th. Hydrant flushing flushes sediments from mainline pipes (which enhances water quality), verifies the proper operation of fire hydrants and valves, helps find weaknesses in the water system, checks for closed valves and weak flows in the water mains, and verifies ample flow for fire fighting. During hydrant flushing there may be a temporary drop in water pressure at this time. Water may be rusty or cloudy. Discolored water is not harmful and will clear up in a few hours.

    Fill a bottle with water and store it in the refrigerator to use for drinking or cooking. Flush your hot water tanks after the cold water clears. Do not wash white laundry during this period (wait until cold AND hot water are clear before laundering whites). If you see a crew flushing a hydrant on your street, avoid running tap water and using the washing machine or the dishwasher until the flushing is completed. If you see hydrant flushing crews working in the area, please drive carefully and treat them like any other road construction crew. If tap water is used during flushing, it could come out full of sediment that causes discoloration. When a hydrant is opened, there will be temporary incidences of discolored water while fine sediment particles are flushed out. There is no health hazard associated with the discolored water. Allow a few hours for discoloration to dissipate. To verify water is clear, run your cold-water tap for a few minutes.

    If you encounter discolored water, shut the water off and wait several minutes. After waiting, check the clarity by running cold water for a few minutes allowing new water to work its way into your pipes. If the water is clear it’s OK to use. If not, wait a few more minutes and check again. In some cases, there may be slight discoloration for a few hours. This discoloration only affects the appearance of the water; it does not affect the taste or water quality. Avoid washing laundry during scheduled flushing times. Wait until the water runs clear at the tap, then wash a load of dark clothes first. Hot water tanks can hold discolored water for some time after the cold water runs clear. If pressure or volume seems low, check your faucet screens for trapped particles.
