Boil Order Lifted

The Precautionary Boil order for the Village of Jerome is lifted as of today Saturday, January 14, 2023.

All water is safe to drink and cook with. Samples that were sent to the ILLINOIS EPA have come back clear.

The Precautionary Boil order was a safe guard due to pressures dropping below 20 psi. No further action is required.
All entities required by law will be notified of the lifting of the Precautionary Boil order per Public Works Supervisor Dave Wilken.
