Water Service Restored in South Suburban Dixmoor Following Pipe Break

A boil order was issued for the village in October after multiple water issues were reported

Water service was restored in Dixmoor Sunday evening following a pipe break that caused low water pressure for the south suburban community, officials said.

In a news release, village officials explained a water leak on Spaulding Street resulted in low water pressure to most of residents.

Village President Fitzgerald Roberts said village trustees and public works officials were working around the clock to restore pressure, and he hoped the issue could be resolved by the end of the day Sunday.

In an update hours later, officials said the break had been repaired and pressure was building back up. Residents were advised to boil water for the next 24 hours as pressure builds.

In October, Dixmoor experienced water pressure issues for multiple weeks, leaving many to rely on bottled water and the implementation of a boil order. Some businesses were forced to close and schools shifted to remote learning as the village faced a myriad of water-related issues, including problems with turbines and water pressure.

A boil order was lifted in early November.
