Precautionary Boil Order

An alert tonight on a boil order for the Harrison and Alpine area.

23 News spoke with the Rockford City Water Department who says a contractor accidentally turned off a valve while working nearby.

Water fell below required levels and a precautionary boil order has been issued for a 5 block radius around the Harrison and Alpine intersection.

It effects about 50 families, again it's only precautionary, and the city hopes to have everything fixed by tomorrow.
