Boil advisory issued in Cass County cities

CASS COUNTY, Mo. — Water customers in Pleasant Hill and Strasburg are under a boil advisory issued following a low-pressure event in a transmission line.

The mayor of Pleasant Hill says the line was repaired, chlorinated and flushed by 9 p.m. on Wednesday, but regulations mandate a boil advisory is in place until water samples are tested and found not to be contaminated.

You’re encouraged to boil water vigorously for three minutes and allowing it to cool before drinking it, or using for hygiene or food preparation. You should also replace ice made with unboiled tap water.

This order does not apply to customers in Water District 5 or 9.
