Water Still Off In Southern Illinois
(Rend Lake, IL) — Folks in seven southern Illinois counties are counting on bottled water and port-a-potties for another day. Managers at the Rend Lake Conservancy District yesterday said they don’t know when they will turn the water back on. Rend Lake’s Larry Sanders says one of the main pipes that carries water into their treatment facility burst Wednesday night. By yesterday, cities and towns across southern Illinois were issued water emergency orders and closing businesses to conserve water. Governor Rauner’s office says as many as 175-thousand people in the southern part of the state are without water. The governor says he’s asked the state emergency management agency to help look for a solution.
