As of 1 p.m. Friday, the boil water notice for customers affected by the ruptured water line on Saturday, August 20th has been lifted.
Boiling water is no longer necessary since the water pressure in the affected area has been restored and water samples collected and tested indicate the water is clean. Those living in the affected areas no longer need to boil their water before drinking, cooking, or making ice.
The areas affected were:
Hillcrest Country Club subdivision between Kent and Purdue Streets and University and Boston Avenues
The businesses along the North University Avenue corridor north of Loop 289 including X-FAB, AT&T and the State Supported Living Center
The area north of Erskine Street and south of Loop 289 between North Avenue X and Cesar E. Chavez Drive
Additional work on the ruptured line must still be completed. Due to that work, southbound traffic on North University Avenue continues to be reduced to one lane at Cesar E. Chavez Drive. Drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes and use caution if driving in the area.
