The water main break which resulted in a boil advisory for residents south of Sauk Trail and east of Western Avenue has been repaired but the boil advisory for the impacted area does remains in place.

Residents in the impacted area should continue to boil water used for cooking and drinking until the village reports water samples have come back clear. The village hopes to receive test results from an independent lab within the next 48 to 72 hours.

It is important to note that water main maintenance may cause exposure to lead from service lines or household plumbing fixtures. It is not known for certain if this incident will adversely affect the lead (if present) in plumbing or outside homes. There are measures residents can take, however, that can reduce any possible lead exposure, if present.

Immediately after disrupted water service has been restored, run your cold tap water for a minimum of two minutes to flush your service line and plumbing.

Continue to visit the village's website periodically for new updates.
