ALTON – Illinois American Water announced late Monday afternoon that it has lifted the boil water order issued to a large portion of City of Alton customers on Monday, Sept. 6, 2021.

"Customers can resume normal water usage," Illinois American Water said in the release. "During the boil water order, a series of water quality tests were performed to confirm drinking water met regulatory drinking water standards.
