The Bethalto Public Works Department continues to report a major water line break which has yet to be located. They continue to advise all users of the system of the possibility of water shortage. Currently the water levels are increasing due to the pumping of additional water into the system from the village's water plant. Early indications are that the break maybe located in the southern end of the system which services Rosewood Heights and the Route 111 corridor.
They are asking any users in that area to observe any additional amounts of water along the system to contact us at either 618-977-4311 or 618-977-7810. Again, there is no need for boiling at this point, only conservation and users are still asked to reduce usage to necessary consumption only.
