Most Southern Illinois Communities Lift Boil Orders
(Marion, IL) — The water is finally safe to use in most of southern Illinois. Marion, Mt. Vernon, Du Quoin, West Frankfort, and about a half dozen other communities lifted their boil orders yesterday. Managers with the Rend Lake Conservancy District gave communities the all clear on Sunday, but a number of cities and towns had to wait for their own water tests to come back. Nearly 160-thousand people were without running water at the end of last week after a pipe feeding the RLCD’s water plant burst.
