Nokomis Water Service Restored After Break in Main

Tue, 09 Apr 2019 10:18:53 CDT

The City of Nokomis was without water for several hours Tuesday, Apr. 9, after a water main suffered a major break along Route 16.

According to Nokomis Public Information Officer Joseph Gasparich, the break occurred on the line near the corner of Hickory Street and Route 16. He said the break was between the water treatment plant and the water tower, causing the entire city to be without water. It has since been repaired.

The break occurred before 4:30 a.m. and service was restored just before 10 a.m. However, residents of Nokomis and the Village of Coalton are under a boil order and will remain so until further notice.

Gasparich says the water is safe to use for cleaning and sanitation purposes, but it should be boiled before it is used for drinking or cooking.
