ST. ANNE, IL – The Village of St. Anne is currently under a boil order after a water main break occurred on Monday afternoon.
The incident took place sometime early in the afternoon, causing the water supply to be turned off for approximately an hour.
The water supply has since been restored to the area, but the boil order is in effect for at least 24 hours until tests can determine it is safe for residents.
Local officials are urging residents to take caution during this time and to boil their water before consuming it or using it for cooking purposes. The boil order is a precautionary measure designed to ensure that the water is safe for public consumption. Water main breaks are not uncommon, especially in rapid temperature changes that can cause pipes to burst.
Residents are encouraged to stay updated on the situation by monitoring local news and social media channels. Any updates or changes to the boil order will be communicated to the public as soon as possible.
For more information or to report any issues related to the water main break, please contact the St. Anne Village Hall.
