 Water Main Break  

Water Pressure

Some residents might experience slightly lower water pressure as a result of a water main break.  Normal water pressure will be restored upon completion of the repair. Water quality will not be affected from the lower water pressure.

Water Outage

Residents may experience a water outage during the repair of a water main break.  Village crews will notify customers affected by the water shutoff by going door-to-door telling them to prepare for a water outage. Customers who do not answer will receive a door hanger on their front door.

In addition to customers being notified with a door hanger, water outages are reported on the Village of Schaumburg's Twitter page.
