Village Voice: Sidewalks + Ice + Cold Temps = What do I do?

While some people may look forward to snow covered trees and lawns, many of us dread icy sidewalks once the temperatures sink lower and lower.

Ada Codified Ordinance 521.06 does require walks to be kept free from snow and ice, by either the owner or the occupant of the property.

Many people start applying rock salt at the first sign of precipitation and cold temperatures. Rock salt, which is primarily sodium chloride, tends to be on the less expensive side of deicers. However, rock salt can harm pets, plants, grass, and trees.

Rock salt can also cause the sidewalks to begin breaking down, depending on the composition of the concrete used during construction.

Village Voice: Fire hydrant flushing July 27-31

Village Voice
In the coming weeks, you may see Village Water and Street Department crews working on fire hydrants throughout the village.

A sign that this work is going on may be water running down the street. If you happen to encounter the running water, please steer clear of the stream, regardless if you are in a car, on a bike or on foot.

Flushing the water hydrant system is a routine maintenance activity.

Over time, sediment deposits may accumulate in the complex water system. These deposits are naturally occurring, and are a result of the minerals in water reacting with the inside of the water pipes.

2014 Ada Consumer Confidence Report now available

The 2014 Ada Consumer Confidence Report, also known as CCR, will be available to the general public on June 1, 2015.

Making the report available is an annual requirement for compliance with the Safe Drinking
Water Act for community water systems throughout the country. According to the U.S. EPA, the report “lists the regulated contaminants found in the drinking water…..as well as health effects information.”

The Village passes this information along to its consumers not just to comply with
the federal regulations, but also because the administration feels it is important for consumers to know where their drinking water comes from and what affects it.
