Laddonia residents deal with water main leak, boil order
LADDONIA - Water issues have recently erupted for the around 500 residents of the small town of Laddonia in Audrain County. Two residents notified KOMU 8 News that the town's water shut down Tuesday. Water was out because of a water main leak, but it was restored by Wednesday.
KOMU 8 News called the city's maintenance supervisor, Carl Donaldson, on Tuesday. He said crews were working on the leak and water should be restored within the hour, but a viewer said it was not.
KOMU 8 News called again Wednesday, and Donaldson said water was restored sometime late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.
According to the city's website, a boil order is in effect until Thursday at 5 p.m. However, Donaldson said the order should be lifted sometime Wednesday. He said the city is waiting to get results back from water samples.
