Based on the water test results from the required follow-up testing of the Village’s water system, the Village has lifted the Village-wide precautionary boil order. The water is safe for drinking and all water customers may resume normal use of Village water for all purposes.
While this was a precautionary boil order, we hope that residents take this as a reminder to stay connected with the Village by registering for Glencoe CONNECT. Register for Glencoe CONNECT or update your current account here: http://ow.ly/4lgk30cK3wZ
Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout this process.
Effective 4 p.m., Monday, June 19, the Village issued a Village-wide precautionary boil order due to a water main break that occurred this afternoon near the intersection of Park Avenue and Bluff Street. This precautionary order will be in effect for at least 24 hours. The Village will use Glencoe CONNECT, the Village eNews list, this webpage and social media to inform the public once the boil order has been lifted.
During this 24 hour period you may continue to use Village water, but the EPA recommends that any water meant for drinking or food preparation should be boiled for a minimum of 5 minutes prior to use. If you notice any discoloration, flush cold water until it runs clear.
