Water Boil Orders
Occasionally, the Village may have to turn water off in order for Public Works staff to perform repair work on the Village’s water system, such as during a water main break. Staff notifies residents of the water shut off and the subsequent precautionary Boil Water Order by hand-distributing notices to each residence affected, as well as posting information on the Village's website.
When the repairs have been completed, a precautionary Boil Water Order will be in effect for approximately 24 hours. This order is to ensure that no contaminants are present as a result of repairs to the water main. Residents are instructed to boil only water from the faucet that is intended to be used for drinking and allow it to cool before consuming.
Upon termination of this order, you will receive notification that the Boil Water Order has expired and that drinking water quality exceeds the Illinois EPA's Safe Drinking Water Standards.
