UPDATE: Certain Moberly residents still under boil advisory
MOBERLY - The boil advisory has ended in Moberly for all customers outside 300 and 400 blocks of West Rollins, the 100 Block of North Williams and the 100 Block of North Fourth.
A new 48-hour boil order for those four blocks, which was issued after a second pipe burst Friday night, remains in effect.
A water line burst in Moberly Friday, which led to a boil advisory for certain residents just hours after a previous advisory had been lifted.
Director of Public Utilities Mary West-Calcagno told KOMU 8 crews that the new advisory would start once the water was restored. She said it only applied to those who lost water pressure, and would be in effect for 48 hours as a precaution while crews tested the water for bacteria.
Calcagno said Friday’s break may have been caused by Wednesday’s break due to “the hammer effect,” which she said happens when water gushes back and forth very quickly between water lines located near each other after a change in pressure.
Crews responded to reports of the 10-inch water line break at the intersection of 4th and West Rollins streets and left just before 1 a.m. According to Calcagno, crews will return with equipment to diagnose and repair the pipe.
EDITOR'S NOTE: an earlier version of the story stated the boil advisory had been lifted for all Moberly residents. That information is incorrect.
