Algonquin Issues Boil Order For Huntington/Hanson Residents
The Village of Algonquin Friday issued a precautionary water boil order for 390 homes after the Illinois EPA detected slight bacterial contamination in a routine water sample near Huntington Drive east of Hanson Road. Village officials said they were nonplussed since other samples nearby showed no contamination but issued the order, anyway. They said they requested an IEPA retest late Friday but weren't sure they could get an answer during the weekend.
Residents in the affected area were advised to boil water for drinking, cooking and brushing teeth for at least three minutes and to toss out any ice that's been made.
