[ARCHIVED] Water Main Break - York Road North of I-290


The City of Elmhurst is reporting a major water main break on York Road north of I-290. Residential and industrial areas north of Lake Street will be experiencing very low or no water pressure until the leak is isolated and pressure can be restored to the system. This could take 4 hours to complete. Crews will be isolating and repairing the leak, which is expected to be completed tonight during the overnight hours. 

Once water service is restored, a precautionary boil order will be in place for drinking water until further notice. During a precautionary boil order, only bottled water or water that has been brought to a rolling boil for five minutes should be consumed or used for brushing teeth, cooking, washing dishes, making ice, or washing produce. It is still safe for residents to use water for washing hands, doing laundry, showering, flushing toilets, etc. 

Due to the size of the area impacted, the City will be unable to hand-deliver timely notices to residents and businesses in the area. The city will issue a release stating the precautionary boil order has been lifted. Please check back at or on the City’s social media accounts for updates.
