Boil order lifted


Illinois American Water issued a boil water order Wednesday afternoon to a portion of its Metro East service area, including Waterloo, Columbia and Millstadt.

The boil order was lifted late Thursday night for some communities and by Friday morning for others.

Illinois American Water issued the boil order after a contractor hit a 24-inch water main at its water treatment plant near East St. Louis, causing a drop in pressure below 20 pounds per square inch.
