City-wide Boil Order CANCELLED
Posted: 07/18/2014


Contact: Kewanee City Hall, 309-852-2611, water@cityofkewanee.net

The City of Kewanee Water system boil water advisory issued July 17, 2014 is hereby cancelled effective immediately.

Customers of the Kewanee Water system were notified on July 17, 2014 of a drop in pressure under 20 p.s.i. in the distribution system mid-morning on July 17, 2014 due to low water levels in the elevated storage tanks. Pressure has since been restored to the distribution system.

Bacteriological testing conducted system-wide later in the day on July 17, 2014 showed no threat to public health from consumption of the water. Thus, the boil water advisory is cancelled.

The Kewanee Water system apologizes for the inconvenience and thanks everyone for their patience while the testing was conducted to confirm the water was potable.

This notice is being sent to you by Kewanee Water System, Water System ID#0730650
