The boil-water advisory will continue through at least tomorrow in the Cass County Rural Water District 2. The advisory was issued last week after a routine sample tested positive for coliform.
The district includes part of Cass, Lancaster and Otoe counties, as well as the village of Murdock.
Residents are advised to boil their water for at least three minutes before drinking it or use bottled water.
Manger Dale Miller says they’ve treated the system with chlorine but the boil advisory is mandatory for seven days. It could be lifted Thursday or Friday.
A few people have called about feeling ill but it’s difficult to determine if it’s related to the water.
It’s mostly dangerous to children, the elderly or those with compromising immune systems.
