Water main breaks forces water shut off in Dixmoor (Dixmoor, IL) — The Village of Dixmoor is dealing with two major water main breaks and has been forced to shut off water service to the entire community until the breaks are fixed.
The two water main breaks are located at 141st Street and Woods Street and at 143rd and Davis and Spaulding Streets. The decision to turn off the water is based on 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. Shutting off the water is simply a precaution to prevent further damage to the water system. There is no information at this time on how long the water will shut off. Village officials are working with Thornton Township to get emergency water to the Village.
The State of Emergency in Dixmoor remains in effect. Food and water are available at Village Hall, located at 170 W 145th St. in Dixmoor. The number to reach Village Hall is 708-389-6121.
