Public Information Officer, Water Services, City of Kansas City, Missouri
A Boil Water Advisory is being issued by Water Services on February 4, 2011 at 5 pm.
The affected area is a one block of Walnut Street, from Truman Road south to 16th Street.
Customers should boil all drinking water. Boil water vigorously for three minutes before using it to drink, cook, or prepare food. Ice made with un-boiled water should not be used for drinking purposes. Disinfect dishes and food contact surfaces with tap water that contains one teaspoon of household bleach per gallon.
This Boil Water Advisory is being issued due to a water main break that occurred at 1510 Walnut and normal repairs were impacted by contamination from an abandoned underground storage tank.
Customers will be notified when there is no longer a need to boil the water.
For more information about the boil advisory, please call 3-1-1.
For more information, contact Colleen Doctorian, public information officer for the Water Services Department at (816) 513-0232.
