Water Main Break Leaves Kewanee Residents without Water


A water main break on the 600 block of Page Street leaves many Kewanee residents without water until Monday at the earliest. The City of Kewanee posted on their Facebook page that the repairs on the water main break require more than the city has immediately available and that they will need to contract the repairs out. The post also says that they have contacted the outside sources but it will be Monday before the repairs can be started.   The City said “While we understand the frustration for residents that are without water, please know we are doing everything in our ability to get the repairs made as quickly as possible”.

Kewanee Public Work crews worked overnight Saturday on the water main break and were able to restore water to some people.  However, the remaining residents without water won’t have water until Monday at the earliest.
