Malden residents wait for water situation to clear up

NT Staff

MALDEN— A boil order issued this week in the village of Malden will last all weekend, according to Kurt Downie, who takes care of the water system for the city. In addition to the order to boil water before drinking or use, Malden residents should expect to see rusty or discolored water; hydrants are being flushed.

Downie said the village has begun a water project and had shut off Well No. 2 to install new filters. He said a worst-case scenario came about, when the pump for Well No. 1 failed.

The village has to take several water samples in various locations before Illinois Environmental Protection Agency will allow it to lift the boil order.
