Auxvasse lifts fifth boil order in ten weeks
AUXVASSE - The city of Auxvasse said Wednesday it was safe for residents under a boil order to start using their water as normal again.
Residents on East Walnut Street, Chestnut Street, Peach Tree Drive, Sunset Drive, Short Street, South Elm Street, east Elm Street, Oak Street and South Mary Avenue were under a boil order since Monday. The city briefly shut off supply to those areas in order to transition residents to a new water system.
The order was at least the fifth in a series of boil orders the city issued since April 20.
Wednesday morning, City Clerk Missy Hooks said tests of the water for contaminants came back negative.
