Tenants at Treehouse Apartments, 2500 Brush Road in Schaumburg were without water Thursday night and expected to be without water overnight into Friday until repairs are made Friday morning.

According to a tip received, the water main break is affecting the entire complex. The Village of Schaumburg tweeted at 6:56 p.m. Thursday February 14, 2019 water service to the entire complex has been throttled down until repairs can be made Friday morning.


Air temperature overnight is forecast to fall, dropping to about 14°F from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Friday morning. Friday’s high is forecast to only reach 21°F after Thursday’s high of about 49°F.

People should never drink water from their faucets when a water main is broken nearby — even if there is some flow of water out of faucets.

Low water pressure in a broken water main can actually suck contaminants from outside the pipe into the water that could eventually reach a faucet in an apartment or home. Contaminants could include sewer water and feces if a leaking sewer pipe (even a slow leaking sewer) happens to be located near the broken water main. Also, chemical contaminants in the soil, such as lawn fertilizer or herbicides can be present in the soil, which could be sucked into a broken water main that carries water to residences. The EPA requires that residents be warned when water pressure inside a broken water main reaches a specified minimum or lower.

“A study that examined 66 soil and water samples collected from 8 utilities in 6 states. The samples were collected immediately adjacent to the drinking water pipelines. The purpose of the study was to determine the presence of microbial contaminants in the soil immediately external to the distribution system. Whenever a main was excavated, samples were collected of either the water or the undisturbed soil next to the pipe. Total coliform and fecal coliform bacteria were detected in water and soil in about half of the samples, indicating the presence of fecal contamination (Figure 3). Bacillus was found in almost all the samples, which is not a surprise since it is a normal soil organism. Viruses were detected using culturable methods in 12 percent of the soil and water samples, and by molecular methods in 19 percent of the soil samples and 47 percent of the water samples. When these data are combined, 56 percent of the samples were positive for viruses either in the water or the soil. Sequence analysis showed that these viruses were predominantly enteroviruses (the vaccine strain of Poliovirus), but Norwalk and Hepatitis A viruses were also detected, providing clear evidence of human fecal contamination immediately exterior to the pipe.”
