THE BOIL ORDER HAS BEEN LIFTED.
Test results have returned and all is good. Thank you everyone for your patience!
The Village of Carlock continues to be under a boil order today, 10/17/18. We are waiting for testing results to return sometime this afternoon. This is a precautionary measure due to the fire yesterday that pulled an excessive amount of water from our system.
Additionally, I have seen a post about boiling water and the effects it has on arsenic concentration. Though it is true that boiling water will increase the concentration of the arsenic in the water..... as it does for all minerals. . . it is such a miniscule amount for such a short period of time that it does not pose any real danger. However, if it still a concern, bottled water is an option.
We realize this is an inconvenience, but it is necessary to ensure the safety of the water supply. Thank you for your patience and understanding. . and your help to spread the word.
We are truly saddened by the loss of the J&J Powedercoating building, but grateful there were no injuries or worse. Please keep the J&J Powdercoating family in your thoughts and prayers.
The Village of Carlock Trick or Treat hours have been set for October 31, 2018, 5 - 8 p.m.
Kudos to J&J Performance Powder Coating, Inc. and owner Jim Dolan for their work on the new Flight 93 National Memorial called Tower of Voices. They were a subcontractor on the project responsible for sandblasting and powder coating the 40 chimes that are a part of the structure. Forty passengers and crew members lost their life on that flight on 9/11/2001.
In action at the April, 2018 meeting, Village President, Jeremiah Houston, proclaimed May to be Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Awareness Month. We encourage our residents to take some time to learn about this devastating disease and perhaps give towards finding a cure.
