A boil order is in place from south of Pershing into Attica-proper. Pershing Utilities had to lower water pressure in order to fix a broken water main Thursday night, making the boil order necessary.
If you have infants or run a daycare, do not boil your water for children. Instead, you should only have bottled water. When water boils, the minerals tend to concentrate, creating a situation that’s not good for a child’s system.
Pershing Utilities representatives say flushing of the pipes continues, and testing will follow. The hope is that the boil order will be lifted on Monday. If you have any questions or don’t know if you’re in the impacted area, call Pershing Utilities at 842-4293. Be sure to listen to KNIA/KRLS to hear when the boil order has been lifted.
