Illinois American Water said Thursday it has lifted the water conservation measures requested of Metro East customers since Sunday, May 5.
Water use is no longer restricted.
During the conservation order, Illinois American Water crews worked around the clock to make repairs to infrastructure impacted by flood waters. A levee breech near Granite City brought on the problem.
“Repairs of this magnitude should take weeks to months. We are thankful to be a part of the American Water family and to have access to the materials and resources we needed. We were able to respond quickly and continue to provide our valued customers with quality water service,” spokeswoman Karen Cooper said.
