Actually, all this was sounding like an X-files
episode to me. As for more info:No oil wells or
oil storage areas or pipelines nearby. And no
standing water in the vicinity either. Water comes
from city mains(no wells)in metal pipes.She lives
in the south suburban Chicago area. This black
stuff is coming out of every fixture in the house
(three) and in every toilet. "Backwash"- I believe
meaning the flow in the toilet tanks when filling,
happends in all three toilet tanks and several
times a day. I didn't notice a smell(have to get
my nose closer to it). I told my mom to call her
village hall with this problem. Apart from that
I recommended bottled or filtered water for
drinking and cooking.
