Illinois American Water crews are getting ready for a major project to begin Sunday night.  Repairs to a 12-inch water main on Fosterburg Road and College Avenue in Alton should begin around 8pm in order to minimize the impact to their customers and motorists in the area.

Illinois American Water spokesman Karen Cotton tells The Big Z motorists should stay alert while driving through that area.

About 500 customers will be under a boil order as a result of this work.  They will be contacted via phone calls and other media outreach.  The affected service area can be viewed in the shaded area of the map.
