Iowa American Water customers impacted by brief service interruption after contractor hits water main

Iowa American Water reports that some water customers in the vicinity of Eastern Avenue between 52rd - 54th Streets were without water for a short period of time this morning when a contractor working in the area inadvertently hit and broke a water main at Eastern Avenue and 52nd Street in Davenport. Without notifying Iowa American Water, the contractor's personnel then proceeded to operate valves in the area to shut off the leak which in turn interrupted water service to about 200 residential and commercial customers.

Iowa American Water has since restored water service to the area, and a crew is on the scene making repairs to the water main.

Customers who were affected by the water service shutdown are now under a precautionary boil advisory until 4 PM on Wednesday, July 16. Affected areas include:
1430 E. 52nd Street
1600 - 1900 blocks of 53rd Street
5100-5700 blocks of Eastern Avenue
1600-1900 blocks of E. 54th Street
5300 Block of Spring Street
All residents on Stonegate Drive
Crews are in the process of notifying all customers affected by the interruption in water service.

Repairs to the water main should be complete later this afternoon.
