Last Thursday the Northern Illi¬ nois Gas Company, while putting in a new gas main crossing Route 47 struck the Huntley water main leading to Union Special. From 4 o'clock until 2 a.m. the gas com¬ pany and village officials worked to repair this line. Between these hours the west side of town was without water. The village board, however, supplied three tank trucks from Deans Milk Company to supply the residents in this area with water. The trucks were placed strateg¬ ically throughout the section to supply residents with needed wa¬ ter. One was placed on Lincoln Avenue, another on Bonnie Brae and the third on Main and Route 47 at George's D-X gas station. The Northern Illinois Gas Corn- pay was installing this new gas main to increase the capacity of gas to Huntley and as a safety check for the Union Special Ma¬ chine Company. P.T.A.
