Water main breaks fixed, and service restored in Dixmoor (Dixmoor, IL) — The two water main breaks in the Village of Dixmoor have been repaired and water service has been restored, according to Dixmoor Village President Fitzgerald Roberts.
“Water service is back up and running in Dixmoor, but at the moment pressure is low while we wait for the water tank to refill,” Roberts said. “There is a boil water order in effect until further notice. We will continue to make water available for residents at Village Halls for residents who need it.”
The two water main breaks were located at 141st Street and Woods Street and at 143rd and Davis and Spaulding Streets. The Village had to turn the water off due to the amount of water being lost from the water tank and concerns about burning up the Village’s water pumps. During the water crisis last fall, the Village’s water pumps burned up due to the low-pressure issues.
The State of Emergency in Dixmoor remains in effect. Water will be available at Village Hall, located at 170 W 145th St. in Dixmoor, beginning at 9:30 am on Friday. The number to reach Village Hall is 708-389-6121.
