Three Metro East Towns Are Under A Boil Order

(Belleville, IL) — Three Metro East towns are under a boil order. Illinois American Water customers in Belleville, Swansea and Shiloh are instructed to boil cooking or drinking water for five minutes before using it. The order was implemented after a car hit a fire hydrant yesterday evening causing a water main break. The water is safe for bathing, washing and other common uses.
