Chatham Village Board Will Seek Legal Review Of Water Quality Issue
CHATHAM, Ill. (WICS) —
The Chatham village board met Tuesday night to decide whether or not there should be legal review of the village's water issues.
Many residents say the water in Chatham is corrosive and has damaged their faucets, pipes and hot water heaters.
Some claim the water smells, is dirty, and is even causing health issues like hair loss and rashes.
After the public comment portion of the meeting, trustees went into executive session.
Following that closed session, trustees announced they would issue a request for proposals from Chicago attorneys.
The attorney will look at the village's water issue and any potential breaches in its contract with the South Sangamon Water Commission.
There's a meeting planned September 26 for residents to discuss Chatham's water quality.
It will be at the Chatham Community Center from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
