Water Department Work Scheduled
Posted: 07/29/2015

The City of Kewanee Water Department is planning hydrant repairs on Thursday 7/30/15 and Friday 7/31/15.

On Thursday they will be working to change a fire hydrant near the five way stop at Commercial, Grove, and West 1st Streets. Work will begin in the morning and should take about four hours. During this time the 500 and 600 blocks of Commercial will have their water turned off and a boil order for those two blocks will follow.

On Friday they will be changing a fire hydrant at the corner of South Burr Boulevard and Lyle Street. Work in this area will also begin in the morning and will take about four hours. During this time the water in the 100 and 200 blocks of Lyle and the 200 block of South Burr will be off with a boil order to follow.

The boil orders will be in effect for 48 – 72 hours following the restoration of water service.

Residents in these areas may experience low pressure, rusty water, or no water. If the water has been turned off, take precautions when using water until the water runs clean. Only flush the system by running cold water, running hot water may draw rust into the water heater.

If you have any questions, please call City Hall at 852-2611.
