Citywide water alert in Streator continues into second day

Posted by wlpo on March 7, 2015

A citywide boil order remains in effect for Streator.

Illinois American Water which serves Streator and Kangley issued a water alert after a sample came back positive for E. Coli bacteria on Friday. Karen Cotton with Illinois American Water says they’re erring on the side of caution by issuing a citywide alert and flushing Streator’s water system.

Cotton says you can bathe and shower using the water but you should let it boil at least five minutes if you plan on drinking it. She’s hoping to lift the boil order by the end of the weekend.

Bottled water is again available at the Streator Fire Department.
