In this article, you will get all information regarding Water service restored to Bellwood as boil order remains in effect until Dec. 27 – NBC Chicago

Water service has been restored to the suburb of Bellwood after freezing temperatures reportedly caused water main breaks, although a boil order remains in effect.

The boiling order, originally enacted by village officials on Saturday morning, will remain in effect until December 27.

While service has been restored, samples of the village water supply are to be tested by the EPA to ensure safety.

Officials said water used for drinking or cooking should be boiled for five minutes before use. Water used for bathing does not need to be boiled.

“We know it’s an inconvenience, but we want to be safe rather than sorry here in the Village of Bellwood,” Mayor Andre Harvey told NBC 5.

According to officials in Bellwood, a western suburban community of more than 18,000, the rupture occurred due to extreme cold in the area Saturday morning.

Crews spent Saturday morning looking for the source of the break, but as a precaution residents are advised to boil water before using it for drinking or cooking.
