Boil order for Highland has been lifted


A boil order that had been issued for certain areas of Highland because of a water main break has been lifted

A boil order is issued, as required by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, when any work results in an interruption of service, or causes water pressure to drop below 20 pounds per square inch. A boil order remains in effect until test results from the lab indicate the water is safe, typically 48 hours.
