"Massive" loss of water leaves Rock Island residents with low pressure

Updated:

ROCK ISLAND, Illinois - The City of Rock Island is reporting that multiple water main leaks overnight have created a "massive" loss of water which has "nearly drained" the five water towers serving the neighborhoods east of 11th Street and south of 7th Avenue.

The City says customers in the problem area will have "very low water pressure" until the towers can be refilled.  Crews are now working on repairs.

The City says the problem does not affect Southwest Rock Island.
