That may be true Qfingers, but if so why did the (so-called) "superstar finance expert" even take the Illinois job in the first place if she apparently had no intention of trying to come up with some kind of a solution? Remember that airline pilot (Capt. Sullenberger) a while back, who managed to successfully land his crippled plane full of passengers in the middle of the Hudson River (saving a whole…

I wonder how many of these "Free Clinics" Durbin gasses on about he's ever visited for actual healthcare, with his Golden Government (taxpayer supported) insurance. One thing to walk in as a State Senator with the media and entourage to check the service, quite another to be one of the indigent or elderly trying to actually GET service. And, like anything the Government does, it'll…

I noticed that too, GML... and Illinois (if it were to be included among all of the other states that were listed in this case) would have been the furthest east out of all of them. So my first thought was that (maybe) it's purely a geographic issue? Perhaps Illinois falls under the jurisdiction of a different federal court, and not this one located in North Dakota. I honestly don't know,…

Due in would do well to help those facing economic problems find work. It's his party that is responsible for today's economy. With all the different sources to transport people from home to our current clinics, I question the need for this. Don't start thinking Durbin is Daddy Big Bucks either. "That money came out of OUR pockets."

Hannibal Boil Order Lifted Early

Hannibal Boil Order Lifted Early

1 year, 2 months ago by Scott Hardy

As of 4:20 P.M. Thursday afternoon; still in effect for Ralls Co. WSD #1 customers

 

The Boil Order that was originally extended until 1:00 PM Friday, June 27, 2014 for all Hannibal Board of Public Works customers has been officially lifted early. The Boil Order has ended as of 4:20 P.M. Thursday June 26, 2014. 

 

All bacterial testing came back completely free of contaminants and the chlorine levels are consistently above the required threshold of 0.5 mg per liter. 

 

It is now safe for Hannibal BPW customers to consume and use water as you normally would without boiling beforehand.

 

The Boil Order remains in effect for Public Water Supply District #1 in Ralls County until 1 P.M. Friday, June 27, 2014

The District gets its' water from Hannibal.

The Board of Public Works advises those affected by the Boil Order to do the following:

  1. Boil water vigorously for 3 minutes prior to use for cooking or drinking.
  2. Disinfect food contact surfaces (dishes, cooking utensils, pans, etc.) by immersing them for at least 1 minute in clean tap water that contains one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water.
  3. Dispose of ice cubes and remake with water that has been boiled.
  4. Continue boiling all water that is to be used for cooking or drinking until posted time or notified that the boil order has been lifted.
  5. Water used for bathing does not need to be boiled.
  6. Normal precautionary boil orders will be for 48 hours.
  7. Prior to lifting the boil order, the HPBW is required to test for chlorine residuals and bacteria in the affected area.
  8. If test results do not show proper chlorine amounts and no bacteria present, then the boil order will be extended.
  9. Chlorine residual testing only takes a few minutes, while bacteria testing takes 24 hours.

The storm that rolled through on Sunday also knocked out power to a large portion of town and knocked a number of branches as it brought over an inch of rain Sunday afternoon.
