Boil Order Will Be in Place Through At Least Sunday

Some rural Marion County residents can expect the boil order to continue through the weekend. Officials at Marion County Rural Water tell KNIA/KRLS News that the water line that was broken has been fixed, but now they must test the water for contaminants. A water main break lowers water pressure, increasing the chance that contaminants have entered the water stream. Authorities say you should boil water for a minute before using it for drinking or cooking and also recommend the use of bottled water.

The water must pass DNR tests on consecutive days before a boil order advisory is lifted. Officials say if all goes well, the advisory will be lifted on Sunday or Monday. KNIA/KRLS will ley listeners know as soon as the boil order is lifted.
