Boil order in place for Bovill

Boil order for Bovill through Friday February 9, 2018.

The mayor of Bovill has placed the city under a boil order through Friday.

Mike Porter told KLEW News Tuesday he noticed his water pressure was low around 2:30 a.m.

He went out to the reservoir and discovered the pumps had stopped.

"That issue has been fixed," he explained.

"But as a precaution I've issued a boil order through Friday."

The reservoir is filling up now but to be safe, residents should boil their water before drinking.

Showering is safe and the water has been chlorinated.

The city will sample the water Wednesday and are expecting to receive results on Friday.
