Excelsior Springs issuing preemptive boil order ahead of scheduled maintenance
The Excelsior Springs Water Plant will be switching its disinfection from Chlorine Gas to Sodium Hypochlorite, (Liquid Bleach) as part of a current plant upgrade project to create a safer environment.
That boil advisory will start on Wednesday, September 20 at 8 a.m., and will run through Friday, September 22.
Boil water vigorously for three minutes prior to use. Use only water that has been boiled for drinking, diluting fruit juices, and all other food preparation, and brushing teeth.
Dispose of ice cubes and do not use ice from a household automatic ice maker. Remake ice with water that has been boiled.
