Some residents of Langleyville should expect to have their water shut off parts of Friday and to be under a boil order through the Labor Day weekend. The shutoff should start around noon Friday, and once service is restored, the boil order will go into effect. The shutoff and boil order affect water customers west of Parker Street in Langleyville.
Langleyville water operator Mark Jacoby says crews will be repairing a leak in a water main in that area.
Jacoby says because it is a holiday weekend, the EPA cannot receive water samples until Tuesday, meaning he doesn’t expect the boil order to be lifted until Wednesday. Only water to be consumed needs to be boiled, showering and laundry water is ok.
Also in Taylorville, there is a boil order right now for the area around the Christian County Senior Center in Taylorville, and the center is in immediate need of donated water. If you can help, please take water over to the center so they can continue to operate. If you have any questions, call 824-4263.
