Contamination by flood water of some shallow wells in Lakewood had disappeared.
That’s what a phone call from the McHenry County Health Department revealed to Lakewood Village Clerk Janice Hansen a week or so ago.
Lakewood residents on the East Side do not have village water.
Each home has its own well.
Water can be reached at the 20-22 foot level.
Some of these wells became contaminated with e. coli during the summer floods.
Other wells tapping into water from Wisconsin as ours, which is 189 feet deep, had no problem.
