The City of Kewanee Public Works Department has two repairs scheduled in the area of West 6th, Perkins, and North West Streets for Wednesday, 3/24/21.  A sewer repair and hydrant replacement are scheduled to begin at 7:00 a.m. Wednesday morning (weather permitting).  The following addresses will have water shut off while work is taking place:

  • 528 N West St
  • 607 N West St
  • 613 N West St
  • 615 N West St
  • 617 N West St
  • 623 N West St

 Homes in these areas are likely to have low water pressure and/or rusty water.  Residents are asked to take precautions when using water until the water runs clean.  Only flush the system by running cold water, running hot water may draw rust into the water heater.  Water being consumed for drinking or eating is all that is under the order.  Using water for cleaning, laundry, showers, etc. does not need to be boiled.

Residents are asked to take precautions while driving in these areas, and to avoid the area if possible.  Flaggers will be present along the highway.

As soon as the boil order is lifted, the City will issue a press release to let residents know.  If you have any questions, please contact City Hall at 852-2611.
