Water quality in Western Springs' Ridgewood subdivision has improved in recent weeks, according to a report from the Village of Western Springs.
"Recent samples from areas within the subdivision over the past several weeks have shown some improvement in the water quality in the subdivision," the report posted online reads. "Iron levels have gone down substantially from earlier measurements in June and July, but are still higher than the iron levels that are measured when the water leaves the plant to the distribution system."
The village began using a "permanent chemical feed system" for the chlorine system at the water plant in August. The report states that adjustments to the chemical feed system will be made in the coming weeks.
"Staff will also be monitoring changes in the water as it completes the hydrant flushing process throughout the community, which should assist in pulling sediment and iron out of the distribution system," the report reads.
