Water Main Break


Water main beaks require the water to be shut off.  In the instance that this occurs at night, residents will not be awakened to be informed that their water is off.  Please be aware that the Department of Public Works must wait for utility located before digging, sometimes causing short delays in the repair process.  After the repair, water may be slightly cloudy but it will clear after running for a short time.  A boil order may also be issued.

If you see a suspicious amount of water running, please call the Department of Public works at 618-654-9891. After hours please call 618-654-9891 and follow the prompts.
