VERMILION COUNTY -- The winter weather is affecting the quality of water. Aqua Illinois gets water from Lake Vermilion.

Heavy snow and rain made its way into the lake. Aqua Illinois can't treat it fast enough, so there are higher levels of chlorine and customers are asking questions.

Aqua Illinois says the water is still safe to drink. Officials say they hope to have things back to normal in the next few days.
