CARBON CLIFF -- Village officials on Friday night lifted a boil order that had been in effect for part of Carbon Cliff.

The precautionary boil order was issued early Thursday for all homes on Pleasant Avenue in Carbon Cliff when a water main break caused low pressure in the water system. Around 7:30 p.m. Friday, officials announced that water samples had passed Illinois and federal tests and the boil order was no longer needed.
