The boil order has been lifted, Sept. 21, 2016 at 12:29PM.

“Your water is now safe to use, however, at first the water may be discolored; this is due to disruptions in the line,” the City of Collinsville said in a statement.

“Just let it run until it’s clear. You may then use it for drinking and cooking as you normally would,” they advise.

City workers will be tagging doors again with notifications regarding the lift of the boil order.
