Boil order lifted in Bland

A worker tries to fix the water main break Friday morning.

Two days after a water main burst in Bland city hall, Bland Mayor Ronald Schafferkoetter said Sunday a boil water order has been lifted for the entire city.

A second water sample taken Saturday returned late Sunday morning as normal. A sample taken Friday had also returned with safe results earlier, but the city needed the second test to confirm that the water was clear to lift the boil order.
