City of Rockford issues boil order after water main break

ROCKFORD – A boil order has been issued for the city’s West Hydraulic Pressure Zone after portions of the system experienced a drop in water pressure due to a large diameter water main break.

Repairs have been completed, and the system is fully operational. Customers should boil their tap water for one full minute prior to drinking or cooking. Rockford Water is flushing the impacted area and collecting water samples.

The city says it anticipates that the boil order will last for 24 hours. Officials will notify customers once boiling is no longer necessary. Anyone with question is asked to contact the City of Rockford Water Quality Section at 779-348-7151.
