A water main break left some areas of Kewanee, Illinois without water service in the area of East South Street.

The break happened Thursday, June 21, 2012 on East South. 

Some customers lost all water in an area from East College to East South Street, Willard to Shadycrest.

Residents in the affected area could have no water, low water pressure or see rusty water from their tap. 

City officials say affected customers should not run hot water, as this can draw rust into your water heater.  Instead, flush your system by running the cold water tap only.

Customers whose water service was shut off during repairs of the broken water main will be under a boil order until Monday or Tuesday, June 25 or 26, 2012. 

Questions can be directed to Kewanee City Hall at (309) 852-2611.
