Boil advisory issued after water main break in Dearborn
DEARBORN, Mo. — The City of Dearborn’s water system had a water main break Friday morning February 22nd; and residents on the east side of town between Main Street and McPherson Street from 4th Street to 1st Street (or Z Highway) have been advised to boil the water they use.
The break is being repaired; however, there is a boil advisory in place until further notice. The City expects the boil advisory to be in place about three days.
As a reminder:
- Boil water vigorously for three minutes prior to use for cooking or drinking.
- Disinfect food contact surfaces (dishes) by immersing them for at least one minute in clean tap water that contains one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water.
- Dispose of ice cubes and remake them with water that has been boiled.
- Water used for bathing does not need to be boiled.
