Boil Orders in Moline

A boil order for a residential area of Moline has been lifted. It was issued Monday as a precaution after city crews had to repair a broken water main. 

  The boil order affected the Rock View Estates, from I-74 east to 38th Street and from 35th Avenue south to 37th Avenue. And now the city says lab tests have confirmed that no contamination occurred in this neighborhood
But, three separate pre-cautionary boil orders remain in effect for the following areas of Moline:
- the 37-hundred block of 35th Street (this is along the 35th Street hill immediately south of the area identified above)
- 1521, 1522, 1526, 1529, and 1530 46th Avenue, and 4575 & 4601 16th Street
- and for 3105 and 3109 29th Street
Customers in these other areas of Moline will be directly notified when these other precautionary boil orders are lifted. 
Residents of the city can monitor the precautionary boil order by going to the Moline website, and using the “Residents”  drop-down menu to click on the “Boil Order Inquiry” tab.
