Effective Monday 4/16/18, the City of Kewanee Water Department has scheduled a hydrant repair and water shut off with a boil order to follow. Work is scheduled for a hydrant at 420 East McClure Street. Residents in the 400 block of East McClure, as well as 333 East Street South will have water shut off during this repair. Work is expected to begin at 8:00 a.m. Monday, weather permitting. If work is not able to be done on Monday, the Water Department will continue to have this scheduled for work done by the end of the same week.
Any residents, whose water has been shut off during this repair, will be under a boil order for 48 – 72 hours following the restoration of water service.
Residents in these areas may experience low pressure, rusty water, or no water. If the water has been turned off, take precautions when using water until the water runs clean. Only flush the system by running cold water, running hot water may draw rust into the water heater.
