A boil order has been lifted at a number of commercial properties in north suburban Highland Park that were affected by a water main break on Thursday.
The boil order was lifted for eight of the 10 properties by 10:15 p.m. Friday, and for the final two by 7:20 p.m. Saturday, according to a statement from the city of Highland Park. No further properties remain under a boil order.
The properties under the order had experienced reduced water pressure caused by a water main break on Route 41 north of Route 22 early Thursday morning, city officials said. The order was issued as a precaution because the drop in pressure created the potential for ground water to enter the pipeline.
The addresses affected by the order were:
- 1393 Half Day Road;
- 2744 Skokie Valley Road;
- 2748 Skokie Valley Road;
- 2750-2760 Skokie Valley Road;
- 2772-2782 Skokie Valley Road;
- 2860 Skokie Valley Road;
- 2868 Skokie Valley Road;
- 2870 Skokie Valley Road;
- 2900 Skokie Valley Road; and
- 2930 Skokie Valley Road.
City officials said tap water is now safe for consumption in all of the affected areas.
