WASHINGTON — Residents in the Washington Estates area are under a boil order.
A loss in water pressure within the Washington Estates system caused the order, Illinois American Water said in a news release.
Customers should bring their water to a rolling boil for five minutes before using for drinking or cooking. It is not necessary to do so for bathing, washing or other ordinary uses.
The order is expected to be in effect for 36 to 48 hours.
