Water line flushing

The Village of Tolono water department will be flushing water lines the week of June 5-9, 2017.  Starting June first, there will be an elevated level of chlorine in the water.  This elevated level of chlorine will still be BELOW the maximum allowable limit set by the EPA.

During this time, there may be a noticeable taste & smell of chlorine in our water.  The water will still be safe to drink. Please be aware that additional chlorine levels may cause discoloration in your water that could lead to discoloration in clothing and other fabrics.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call the village office at (217)485-5212 during business hours or email
