Boil-water advisory lifted for rural water districts

Richmond advisory lifted Saturday

RICHMOND — The boil-water advisory for customers of Madison County Utilities and the Kirksville Water Association – rural utility districts supplied by Richmond Utilities – was lifted early Sunday afternoon.

The Madison County Emergency Management Agency issued the announcement on its website as well as its mass notification system that includes email, text messaging and automated phone calls.

The advisory was issued Friday evening after Richmond Utilities suffered waterline breaks on Oakland and Irvine streets. Work on a water tank on the Eastern Bypass prevented the municipal utility from rerouting water and limiting the area under advisory, Superintendent Scott Althauser said.

Richmond Utilities got a clean test report and lifted its advisory early Saturday afternoon. The rural districts had to wait until Richmond obtained a negative test result before they could begin their water tests, which can take up to 24 hours.
