KC Water issues Boil Water Advisory for Northeast

Customers within the bubble are in a Boil Water Advisory on Oct. 5.

KC Water is issuing a precautionary boil water advisory to customers within two areas in Jackson County – customers in the Northeast Industrial District and portions of the northern part of the Historic Old Northeast within the boundaries of I-35 to I-435, and from St. John Avenue to the Missouri River, customers in the Union Hill and Longfellow neighborhoods within the boundaries of Main Street to Troost Avenue, and from Linwood Boulevard to East 27th Street.

Customers within the square are in a Boil Water Advisory on Oct. 5.

Customers may experience low water pressure in this area. Water service in this area has returned, but customers should follow the following Boil Water Advisory until a Cancellation Notice is issued.

A Boil Water Advisory is issued as a precautionary measure. Under a Boil Water Advisory, it is recommended that customers follow these guidelines:

Boil all drinking water. Tap water should be boiled vigorously for three minutes before using it to drink, cook, or prepare food. Let the water cool sufficiently before drinking. Ice made with un-boiled tap water should not be used for drinking purposes. Dishes and food contact surfaces may be disinfected using tap water that contains one teaspoon of household bleach per gallon.

The tap water is safe for other purposes such as bathing; however, small children should be discouraged from swallowing bath water. Water boiled for drinking and cooking purposes may be used for brushing teeth. KC Water will sample and test the tap water in this area to ensure water quality and safety. 

Customers will receive notification from KC Water to cease the boil water advisory only after the tap water has been tested and water quality has been confirmed.

According to the City of Kansas City’s Media Office, there was a water main break at 1 NW Briarcliff Rd., which is near the water treatment plant. KC Water halted production at the water treatment plant while repairs were made. KC Water crews worked overnight to repair the broken main and water has been restored.

Due to water pressure concerns in the area noted, KC Water issued boil water advisory as a precaution.
