Canton Public Works Department Replacing Fire Hydrant

(Canton, IL) -- Beginning next week, city crews in Canton will be replacing a hydrant on Avenue I and West Locust Street. As a result, water will be off from Avenue I, west to Sherwood Forest. The water shut off will not affect residents of Sherwood Forest. Where water will be turned off, officials say it won't be off long but once water is restored, a boil order will be issued until further notice for that area. The boil order will be for residents on all property west of the Siesta Motel on both the north and south sides of West Locust, including Old West Locust. Officials ask that you check the City of Canton website at www.cantonillinois.org for additional information regarding boil orders.
