More Water Main Breaks in Village of Dixmoor; Schools Closed (Dixmoor, IL) — A water main break was discovered this morning in Dixmoor, but there appears to be multiple breaks as none of the schools in the Village have water pressure, according to Village President Fitzgerald Roberts.

A water main break occurred today at 141st and Wood Street in Dixmoor. All of the schools in Dixmoor are presently closed due to lack of pressure.

“The break on 141st street should not be causing the water pressure issues we are having,” Roberts said. “There must be another break we are not seeing yet. We are working as fast as we can to identify the problem so we can fix it.”

These are the latest in a series of breaks spanning about a week in the village.

President Roberts says the aging infrastructure needs to be repaired and replaced, but he needs to funds to do so.

“These pipes are old and brittle, and these breaks seem to be creating a chain reaction. Our community desperately needs some major funding to permanently solve these problems.”

The village of less than 3,000 people is still under a boil order.
