Press release submitted by city of Rock Island


Low Water Pressure

Multiple water main leaks overnight have created a massive loss of water and nearly drained the
five water towers serving the neighborhoods east of 11th Street and south of 7th Avenue. The
problem does not affect Southwest Rock Island. Customers in the problem area will have very
low water pressure until the towers can be refilled. Repair crews are on-site.
