Boil water advisory in effect for Centertown

Residents of Centertown are advised to boil their water for the next 24 hours due to possible contamination.

Residents of Centertown are advised to boil their water until further notice due to possible contamination as the result of water tower cleaning operations.

According to a city spokesperson, the water tower was being drained and cleaned when some lead particles contaminated the water, turning in a reddish color in local neighborhoods.

Representatives from the Department of Natural Resources have assured city officials that there is no danger from drinking the water and the boil advisory is strictly precautionary.

The order will be in effect for at least 24 hours.

Residents with questions can call Chief Water Operator Derek McCubbin at 573-286-2727.
