Boil advisory lifted for Kansas City area

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 cooking.

Tests on the water samples taken from the area showed that the water is safe to drink without boiling.
