SUMMERSVILLE, Mo.–The city of Summersville is under a boil water order until further notice.

City officials tell Ozark Radio News a line break on Monday caused the city’s supply of chlorine to dissipate. The break has been fixed and chlorine is being added to the system.

The boil order will be lifted once enough chlorine is added and two days of safe samples are obtained by the Department of Natural Resources.

People should boil water vigorously for three minutes prior to use for cooking or drinking. You can also disinfect dishes by immersing them for at least one minute in clean water containing at least fifty parts per million free chlorine. Adding one teaspoon of unscented household chlorine bleach to each gallon of water should result in a working solution. Water used for bathing, cleaning, or hand washing does not need to be boiled.
