Dixmoor water main breaks expected to be fixed this week

Final repairs to a series of water main breaks in Dixmoor are expected to be completed this week.

The village had five mains break last Monday, forcing a two-day closure of schools and a boil water advisory.

That order was lifted on Friday.


The village president, Mayor Fitzgerald Roberts, says the final repairs are expected to be done by Wednesday.

Last week, Mayor Roberts had said the village needed help – and fast.

"I appreciate the help we are getting from Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle," Roberts said. "The crews the County sent us have helped us get to a point where we can get these repairs done. I also thank Cook County Commissioner Deborah Sims, our Village Board, our staff, and our public works department of all of their hard work."
