Focus has Been on Jackson Mississippi While Dixmoor Residents are Still Without Water (Dixmoor, IL) – Another water main broke over the weekend in Dixmoor, bringing the number of current breaks needing repaired to two, according to Dixmoor Village President Fitzgerald Roberts.
The latest break is on Woods Street and is a major artery serving the Village of Dixmoor. There is water service and schools remain open and currently there are no boil water orders in the Village.
“We need some help in our community,” Roberts said. “These breaks keep happening and we can’t get anywhere to fix these problems as long the breaks keep occurring. I am hopeful, we can get the Village of Dixmoor declared a disaster area and we get some emergency funding to address these issues.”
