Boil advisory issued for 135th Street south to the city limits, Holmes to State Line Road
A Boil Water Advisory is being issued by Water Services on Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2011 effective immediately. Water Services anticipates the boil advisory to last up to 48 hours.
The affected area includes both sides of 135th Street south to the city limits and Holmes to State Line Road.
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 as a precaution due to a 12–inch water main break that occurred at 139th Street and Wyandotte Road that caused a drop in water pressure.
A media release will be issued when the boil advisory is lifted.
