Boil order issued after water main break

A boil order is in effect until further notice in the town of Bland after a water main burst in city hall early this morning.

Gasconade County Emergency Management officials tell KRCG 13 they believe the pipe is fixed and the water reservoirs are starting to fill.

Until the water is cleared, residents can pick up water donated by Walmart and the Red Cross at the Bland Baptist Church.

People with special needs or who for some reason cannot get to the church for water, are asked to call the Gasconade County non-emergency number at 573-437-7770 and someone will deliver water to them.
