SPECIAL ALERT - July 8, 2020 - 9:20 am

Due to a water main break in the Village of Barrington, we have issued a Village-wide BOIL ORDER effective immediately until further notice today. Stay tuned for updates and further information as it becomes available. We are working on repairs and will update the community when repairs have been made and the order can be lifted. 

**A boil order means that you must boil your water before using until further notice**

Water to be used for drinking, cooking, washing of fruits and/or vegetables and hands or the brushing of teeth should be brought to a rolling boil for 3-5 minutes before use. 

This order is in effect for Village of Barrington residents only. Surrounding communities are NOT affected unless you are on Village of Barrington water.
