Hampton is dealing with yet another water main break — the eighth in six days.
The latest break happened in the same location as the last one — at the corner of 6th and 8th avenues, along Hubbard Road.
Area residents are already under a boil order.
The village clerk says a member from Illinois Rural is looking into the ongoing breakage problem.
This week, the village announced it’s raising water rates to help repair its 70-year-old water system.
