A water main break early Wednesday morning has caused a boil order for some Taylorville residents.
Taylorville Water Superintendent Dave Speagle says the break occurred on North Webster Street and has since been fixed. Speagle says if your home has been tagged with a red tag in that area, then your house is in the area of the boil order. He says homes without a tag are unaffected by the main break.
The boil order area includes the 700 block of North Webster (the odd numbered side), the 300 through 600 blocks of West Springfield Road, 734, 808, and 820 Haner Avenue, and 313 Taft Street. These residents are urged to boil their water for drinking and cooking purposes for five minutes before using. Residents will be notified when the boil order is lifted.
