Bloomington’s meeting last night will have to wait until tomorrow!
Would you drink this?
This is water from S. Coolidge in Normal, if the homeowner didn’t have a filter system this is what it would look like. The owner claims his neighbors are too afraid to complain. I hear that frequently from citizens who fear retribution by their elected officials and town staff.
Remember when I FOIA’D water complaints?
Mr. Thompson doesn’t care if people know his name. The Town knows, back in November they told him everything was fine. They still are. He is tired of getting no help from the government he pays to provide drinkable water.
Mr. Thompson claims the mains in his neighborhood were replaced a few years ago. He is close to the area Marc Tiritilli exposed forcing the Town to move up a main replacement. https://blnnews.com/2020/12/17/proof-kathleen-lorenz-was-wrong/
The red is the emergency replacement:
Maybe when the replacement is done to fix Grove, Ruston, and Oakdale – Coolidge will be be fixed too. The Town has given Mr. Thompson no information to say it will.
The Town of Normal’s water problems could be a lot bigger than even they know. Citizens can not be afraid to demand good water since they pay for good water! Mr. Thompson thinks all of the 50-60 year old neighborhoods could be affected.
That water is disgusting. Normal thinks running new lines to Rivian and an Uptown underpass are more important however. You get what you vote for Normal!
