Moberly water boil order lifted
Moberly city officials said that residents can resume normal water use after lifting the water boil order late Friday night.
Bacter results confirm that it is safe to use the water, according to a Moberly news release.
"We will continue to flush the system over the next week or so, to make sure disinfectant residuals are remaining consistent at all points in our distribution system," Moberly's Public Utilities Director Mary West-Calcagno said. "We will continue to utilize chlorine as the disinfectant until further notice."
She also announced that discolored water and a strong chlorine odor from the water may be evident. If customers experience discoloration, West-Calcagno recommends letting the water run for a few minutes until the discoloration disappears.
"We thank the community for their understanding and support as we worked to restore service to our customers," she said in the news release. "We understand that this has been a disruption in the daily lives of many people and the industries and businesses in our community as well."
The permanent repair of the water main was completed at 1 p.m. Friday, according to the city's news release. Clean up activities at the site will continue Monday.
