Wilmington boil order ends

The citywide Boil Order put into effect on January 26th has been lifted. Residents serviced by the City of Wilmington, including Lakewood Shores, are now safe to consume water without prior

The Boil Order was implemented as a precautionary measure due to recent flooding of the Kankakee River. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this period. Once flood levels decreased, there was no evidence any flood water contaminated the City's
water supply. To be extra cautious, we proceeded to have the water tested. All samples have passed per Environmental Protection Agency standards. The City will provide updates on the status of the Boil Order lift through area signage, social media, and various media outlets including the Will County Alert System.
