Parts of Boone County under boil water advisory
COLUMBIA - About 100 homes in Boone County were under a boil water advisory Wednesday due to a water main leak and low water pressure in the area.
The Consolidated Public Water Supply District No. 1 said the advisory would last until 4 p.m. Friday.
The advisory affected homes east and south of the Midway Truck Stop, including Cunningham Drive, Van Horn Tavern Road, the east side of Highway UU from Gillespie Bridge Road to Coats Lane, and Johnmayer Lane.
The water supply district suggested taking the following precautions during the advisory:
- When drinking, brushing teeth or using water for food consumption purposes, boil water for three minutes beforehand.
- Do not use ice made from an icemaker. Remake ice from water that has been boiled.
- Clean dishes in a gallon of clean tap water with a teaspoon of household bleach. Soak the dishes in the mixture for a minute.
- Let the water cool before drinking.
