A citywide boil order issued for Kewanee has been lifted.

On Friday, July 18, 2014 a spokesperson from the City of Kewanee Water system advised that the boil order was cancelled.

Water customers had been advised to boil their drinking water for 3-5 minutes before use because of a drop in pressure Thursday morning.

“Bacteriological testing conducted system-wide later in the day on July 17, 2014 showed no threat to public health from consumption of the water,” said a spokesperson from the water system. “Thus, the boil advisory is cancelled.”
