Rend Lake Conservancy District

An official with the Rend Lake Conservancy District says the plant has been able to keep pace with demand and keep all tanks and towers filled since repairing a water main break.

General Counsel Larry Sanders says there are small leaks, which is common in all water systems. Sanders says no breaks have occurred in the system and all leaks are minor. He says no leak currently warrants doing anything more than monitoring.

While the water shortage with the Rend Lake Conservancy District is improving, the City of Anna is dealing with two water main breaks.

(Updated: 11:00am 5/18/2018) -- The broken water line at the Rend Lake Conservancy District has been repaired.

The Intercity Water Plant is pumping water into the system with two high service pumps. The lake intake and the treatment plant have returned to service.

The system will be on a boil water order until Intercity Water receives test results showing the water is safe to drink.

Some schools and businesses are shutting down after a major water main break at the Rend Lake Conservancy District.
