Some Huntley homes on boil order following ruptured water main

HUNTLEY — A boil order has been placed on areas in Huntley until further notice.

A Nixle alert sent at 12:14 p.m. said the boil order is in effect for areas impacted on Edward Ave, Ronald Street and Church Street between Bernice Avenue and Ronald Street.

During water main break situations, residents directly impacted and in adjacent areas may experience sediment or discolored water during and following the repair of the break, according to the alert.

A water main break on Edward Avenue caused a shutdown from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Saturday for repairs. Impacted businesses and residents should boil drinking and cooking water for at least 5 minutes before using for the next 36 hours, according to a Nixle.

The village is also recommending residents run the cold water tap in the lowest location in their house until the water runs clear if they are experiencing discoloration.

Residents with questions should contact the Water Department at 847-515-5200.
