On the Lawndale (west) side of Prairie Ave and 147th the rusty water
was apparent from Friday of the previous week until Tuesday. It has
now been clear since Wednesday. I also saw water field crews
flushing the lines about a week and a half ago at the hydrant at
147th Pl and Prairie Ave. Not sure if the situation was a repair or
not. Hope this info helps.
