A portion of extreme western Carbon Cliff, Illinois was placed under a precautionary boil order after a water main break reduced water pressure.
Water Operator Mike Whittington said the village was asking residents on Pleasant Avenue, including Eagle Ridge School, to boil water for five minutes before using it for drinking or cooking. Eagle Ridge School had classes canceled Tuesday, February 18th, 2014 because of the break. They also had classes canceled on President's Day because of the snow. Eagle Ridge is the only school in the Carbon Cliff-Barstow School District.
The water main break, and announcement of the boil order, happened Tuesday morning, February 18, 2014.
The boil order is a precaution, and will remain in place until the water main break is repaired and water tests confirm there is no contamination in the water.
