Authorities say mayor didn’t tell residents they were drinking contaminated water

CRESTWOOD, Ill. — Federal authorities announced Thursday that the former mayor of Crestwood, Ill., hid from regulators and residents the fact they were drinking contaminated water, according to the suntimes.com.

Authorities announced the indictments of two former water department officials and said the mayor had kept this information hidden for nearly two decades, stated the article.

After discovering a village well had been tainted by vinyl chloride in 1985, residents thought they were getting all of their water from Lake Michigan, but it was later discovered that as much as 20 percent of the village’s water from 1985 to 2007 still came from the tainted well, according to the article.
