Unionville & Putnam County No longer Under Water Boil Order

Unionville & Putnam County are no longer under a water boil order. Last week, the city announced that the Missouri Department of Natural Resources rescinded the water boil order that was first issued on July 9th. The boil order was issued because the public water system exceeded the maximum turbidity level standard. When the turbidity standards are exceeded, it indicates that a treatment plant’s operation is inadequate and that the microbiological quality of the water dispensed to the public may have been compromised. With the boil order now being rescinded, the city is thanking the many involved who helped resolve the issue.
