ALTON — Illinois American Water has lifted the boil water order issued Sept. 20.
Crews repaired a 12-inch water main on Fosterburg Road and College Avenue. Water quality tests have confirmed the water continues to meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Safe Drinking Water Act standards and regulations.
It is no longer necessary for customers to boil water before drinking or cooking. During this boil order, Illinois American Water performed tests to determine if the water met regulatory standards. Samples were taken from sites in the affected area and tests confirmed the water meets state and federal requirements.
