Boil order issued
originally posted on July 7, 2016
Due to emergency repairs on a water main break behind Howell Valley School off ZZ Highway yesterday, the City of West Plains has issued a boil advisory for water users on the north side of Bill Virdon Boulevard from East Towne Village to Doctors’ Drive. The boil advisory will continue until further notice.
Department of Natural Resources regulations require a boil advisory be issued until the water is tested. Persons in these areas should boil drinking and cooking water for three to five minutes. Water used for bathing, cleaning, or hand washing does not need to be boiled.
