Water was shut off after a water main break affecting customers in the neighborhood just southeast of Palmer College in Davenport, Iowa.
A water main break on Pershing Avenue forced crews to turn off water service at about 11 a.m.; service was expected to be restored at about 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 25, 2014.
Customers affected are between 6th and 8th streets on Perry Street and on Pershing Avenue; in the 200 and 300 blocks of E. 7th Street, the 200 block of E. 9th Street, at 723 Brady Street and in the Palmer College Research Building at 741 Brady.
Iowa American Water planned to perform water quality tests to confirm water was safe for consumption after service was restored. Meanwhile, Iowa American issued a precautionary boil order for customers in the affected area until 10 p.m. Wednesday, March 26, 2014.
“As a precautionary measure, water to be used for cooking or consumption should be brought to a rolling boil for one minute before use,” said Iowa American Water spokesperson Lisa Reisen.
