KANSAS CITY, Missouri - A boil advisory was lifted Thursday evening by the Water
Services Department for the area of 120th to 155th and from just
east of Holmes Road to State Line Road in Kansas City.
The advisory was issued just before 5 p.m. Wednesday and
canceled at 10 p.m. Thursday.
The boil water advisory was issued due to a 16–inch water
main break that occurred at 95th and Bannister Road that caused a
drop in water pressure.
The boil advisory lasted about 30 hours.
“I apologize for the inconvenience this Boil Water
Advisory has caused our customers, but protecting public health
with safe drinking water is our highest priority," said Acting
Water Services Director Terry Leeds in a news release.
Colleen Doctorian with the Water Services Department said people
in that area no longer need to boil water prior to drinking or
Tests on the water samples taken from the area showed that the
water is safe to drink without boiling.
