MORRISON, Ill. — The city of Morrison has issued a boil order due to a broken water main.
Everyone living west of North Genesee Street and north of West Main Street is advised to boil their water until further notice.
This boil order is given as a precaution and pursuant to IEPA’s Safe Drinking Water Act. Boil orders are required whenever the water system pressure drops below 20 psi.

Water samples will be taken today and sent to an IEPA certified-lab for analysis. Residents will be notified when the order is lifted.
