Three water main breaks leave much of La Salle under boil order

Posted by wlpo on October 31, 2012

The third time is not a charm in La Salle where city workers were called to a third water main break in a day’s time.  The most recent break is on 5th Street.  Service could be affected on 5th from Gooding to Bucklin.

The break was noticed around 3pm Wednesday.  The first break happened early Wednesday morning near 6th and Wright Street.  The break collapsed an area of Wright Street.

A second water main break was discovered at 3rd and Tonti around 11:30am and was affecting homes between 6th and 1st Streets on Tonti.    Homes and businesses south of 9th Street and east of Interstate 39 are under a boil order.  The north side of 9th Street is not.
