Illinois American Water Impacted by Flooding; Mandatory Conservation Measures Required of Metro East Customers

Belleville, Ill. (May 5, 2019) — Due to the impact of flooding on Illinois American Water’s Metro East operations, customers are being directed to conserve water use. Customers should restrict all non-essential water use until further notice and refrain from non-critical water use like running sprinklers, dishwashers and washing machines at this time. Customers are also asked to avoid filling bathtubs if at all possible and to use showers instead.

According to Karen Cooper, senior manager of field operations and production for Illinois American Water’s Southern division, a levee broke south of Illinois American Water’s Chouteau Island intake facility. The incident, which occurred near Granite City, caused damage to the facility’s infrastructure.
