July 17, 2012 (SAUK VILLAGE, Ill.)

Sauk Village residents crowded a public hearing Tuesday night.

It was scheduled after village leaders met with the Illinois Attorney General and EPA officials.

Mayor Lewis Towers said he learned tests showed vinyl chloride levels in the water are higher than expected.

The village has been working on a plan to replace wells with water from Lake Michigan.
