Illinois American Water has issued a
precautionary boil water advisory for Illinois American Water
Lincoln District customers. Any water to be used for drinking or
cooking should be boiled for five minutes prior to consumption.
Water is OK for bathing, washing and other common uses.
This boil order is being issued in accordance with Illinois EPA
regulations. Anytime water pressure drops below 20 pounds per square
inch in any part of a community's distribution system, a boil order
must be issued as a precaution to protect customers.
The boil water advisory will be in effect until water quality
samples confirm that the water remains safe for consumption.
Customers will be notified once the boil order is lifted.
