Per Village Maintenance, The boil order that was in effect for residents on the South East side of Town has now been lifted.
There was a water main break November 4, 2018. Until further notice everyone south of Broadway Street and east of Vorcey Street are under a Boil Order.
We have been investigating the leak at the corner of Austin and Cory Streets, we are unsure if this was the result of the construction of the new water main, but Friday November 2nd we are going to have Illinois Rural Water Association try and pinpoint a leak and repair it if there is a leak. If there isn’t a leak, we are looking into installing a new storm sewer line to alleviate the standing water at this intersection. We realize this is an inconvenience but please be patient.

The Village of Tolono has been notified of a suspected case of West Nile Virus.
West Nile virus is transmitted through the bite of a Culex pipiens mosquito, commonly called a house mosquito, which has picked up the virus by feeding on an infected bird. Common symptoms include fever, nausea, headache and muscle aches. Symptoms may last from a few days to a few weeks. However, four out of five people infected with West Nile virus will not show any symptoms. In rare cases, severe illness including meningitis or encephalitis, or even death, can occur. People older than 60 and individuals with weakened immune systems are at higher risk for severe illness from West Nile virus.
The Village of Tolono is calling on the community to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds by emptying standing water from flowerpots, gutters, buckets, containers, tires etc. If you have a swimming pool, either drain it or put the cover on it. If you have a bird bath, change the water regularly.
If you are going to be outside, especially in the evening or early morning, be sure to use insect repellant. If possible wear long sleeves, long pants, and socks when outdoors. Mosquitos may bite through clothes, so spray your clothes with repellant as well.
If you are going to have your doors and windows open, you should do a screen inspection. Make sure all screens in your home are tight-fitting and free from holes so that mosquitos can not get into your home.
The Village Public Works Department has sprayed for mosquitos throughout the summer, and they are out today spraying as well.
