Water main break prompts boil order in Streator and neighboring communities

Illinois American water says all of Streator is under a boil water order.

Also included are Kangley, Ransom, Dana, and some area in between.

The Streator Fire Dept. says a broken water main under the water tower on Otter Creek Street Friday evening is to blame.

Water is fine for bathing or washing. It should be brought to a rolling boil for five minutes for cooking or drinking.

The boil order is expected to last for 48-hours.
