There’s a new notification system in place for customers of Illinois American Water Company.  When large water emergencies occur and door-to-door notification is not possible, the company will turn to its new CodeRED system.  This alert system is not affiliated with the weather alert system of the same name.

Illinois American Water Company spokesman Karen Cotton tells The Big Z customers will be contacted through phone, text, or email.
