Share post:

University Park, IL – Residents in University Park and Green Garden are advised to boil their water before use following a Boil Water Advisory issued by Aqua Illinois. This precautionary measure comes in the wake of operational difficulties at the local water plant due to rapid thaw and heavy rains in the Kankakee/University Park area.

According to Aqua Illinois, the water plant experienced increased turbidity levels, reaching 3.1 turbidity units, surpassing the regulatory limit of 1 unit. While the mechanical issues causing this have been resolved, the advisory remains in place until tests confirm the water quality is safe for consumption. Residents are urged to boil water for at least five minutes before using it for drinking, cooking, and other household purposes.

For the latest updates and information, customers can sign up for WaterSmart alerts or visit the Aqua Illinois website. The company has apologized for the inconvenience and is diligently working to restore normal water pressure and lift the advisory as soon as possible.
