Boil order issued for Aqua Illinois customers near Henning Road outside Danville

RURAL DANVILLE — Aqua Illinois officials today issued a boil order for customers along and west of Henning Road due to a water main break.

Officials said those customers should use boiled or bottled water for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation until further notice. That will kill any bacteria or other organisms that might be present in the water.

To properly boil water, bring the water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, then let it cool before using.

The water main break occurred at the intersection of U.S. 150 and Henning Road west of Danville early this morning.

The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency requires that acceptable bacteria sample results be obtained from a set of samples collected in the location of the outage before the boil order can be lifted. After the samples are collected, it will take 24 hours to get the results.

Aqua Illinois officials will notify the public when the boil order is lifted.
