Don't drink the water

The Golden Ghetto's WaterOne's entire service area (Including Mission, KS where I reside) is under a boil water advisory due to a water main break that caused a significant drop in pressure.  Rumor has it that it was a raccoon! What? A raccoon? Get the gun pa! A boil water advisory was issued as a "precautionary" measure for all homes and businesses within WaterOne's service area. Just what we need when the temp is over 100!

Because of the extended loss of pressure, WaterOne cannot assure the safety of water until testing is completed, which takes a minimum of....well uh hmmm...18 hours! All residential and commercial establishments were advised to boil water for a minimum of two minutes before consuming, or use bottled water for drinking until the advisory is lifted. However, the water is safe for bathing. The boil advisory is in effect until at least....5 p.m. Saturday, July 2nd! Oh the joy!
