This was all much ado about nothing. He had a budget to decorate his office just like every other congressman does...and you think they they don't spend all of their budgets??? Nobody accused him of overspending his budget. It's just that he didn't do the oak and mahogany and boring decor that the others use. Let's go look at how much Hillary spent redecorating the W

Hannibal Boil Order Lifted Early

Hannibal Boil Order Lifted Early

8 months, 1 week 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.
