Hoopeston Police report that the boil order for the City of Hoopeston has been lifted.


HOOPESTON, Ill. (WCIA) – A neighborhood in Hoopeston is currently under a boil order after a water main broke Tuesday night.

The affected neighborhood is located on the west end of town between Main Street and Thompson Avenue.

The water was shut off early Wednesday morning. Crews have since then repaired the water main, so water has been turned back on for that area of town.

Officials said they do not know when the boil order will be lifted. Currently, they are waiting for samples to get back from a lab, and that can take at least a day or two.
