KANSAS CITY, Mo. — UPDATE | WaterOne said the boil advisory for parts of Leawood and Overland Park, Kansas, was lifted Thursday just after 1 p.m.

WaterOne also said in a Tweet that "all tests confirmed that NO contamination occurred."

PREVIOUS | A boil advisory has been issued for portions of Leawood and Overland Park because of a water main break in the area.

The order was issued around 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday by WaterOne.

The area under the temporary advisory includes neighborhoods east of Roe Avenue to State Line Road, and from 103rd Street to Interstate 435.

A water main break near 103rd Street and Mission Road caused the system to lose pressure in the area. The advisory is a precaution, and there is no evidence of contamination at this time.

The advisory is in effect for 24 hours, until 4 p.m. on Thursday. It will be lifted when water testing is complete. According to WaterOne, testing takes around 18 hours.

Water should be boiled for two minutes before consumption during the advisory. Water is still okay to use as normal for cleaning, bathing and watering plants.
