Boil order lifted for City of Essex | Health
ESSEX, MO (KFVS) - The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has lifted the boil water order for the City of Essex.
Department officials lifted the order on Monday, Sept. 17 after test results from water samples taken on Sept. 14 showed that the water is again safe to drink.
Officials declared the order because a problem with the aeration pumps and detention basin was found causing contamination in water samples taken from the water system around 9 p.m. on Sept. 9.
