Johnsburg releases 2014 water quality report
The Village of Johnsburg released its 2014 water quality report this week, detailing both of the village's groundwater sources.
The Consumer Confidence Report on Water Systems contains the results of an assessment conducted by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency last year. The report concludes that the Route 31 Water System, one of two groundwater sources serving Johnsburg, is susceptible to contamination from 15 different sources. Radioactive contaminants and inorganic contaminants, such as salts or metal, both tested at levels high enough to warrant violations.
The village's second groundwater source -- the Shiloh Ridge Water Supply -- was found to be near one potential source of contamination, but not vulnerable.
Copies of the reports can be obtained at City Hall or by calling the water operator at 224-558-0950.
