Boil Order Issued
Due to two water main breaks Tuesday morning 12/10/13, several areas of town will be under boil order.
Areas under boil order from the first break include: Green Street, Edwards from College to South, East South from Edwards to East, East Street South from South to College, Shadycrest Drive, and Andrews Avenue.
Areas under boil order from the second break include: Tenney Street from McClure to Garfield, including Pizza Hut, LaGondola, Danny’s, CSB, and Tenney Bowl, as well as residents on the south side of the 100 block of West McClure.
Any residents whose water has been shut off during these repairs, will be under a boil order for 48 – 72 hours following the restoration of water service.
Residents in these areas may experience low pressure, rusty water, or no water. If water has been turned off, residents should take precautions when using their water until the water runs clean. Only flush the system by running cold water, running hot water will draw rust into the water heater.
The Water Department will also be running hydrants at the intersections of College and East South, Shadycrest and East South, and Edwards and East South. Hydrants will run until the boil order samples come back clean.
If you have any questions, please call City Hall at 852-2611.
Boil Order Lifted
Effective 12/10/13, the boil order issued by the City of Kewanee Water Department for 1001 Cambridge Road, as well as for residents on Golden Avenue and Irwin Avenue has been lifted.
