The Edina Sentinel reports that residents in and around Hurdland and Baring, Mo., could be without water until tomorrow. Knox County Water District Manager Gary Mallett told the Sentinel that a rupture in a main south of Edina is the culprit.
“Everyone north and west of the Highway 6 and 15 junction is without water,” Mallett said. “Water will be restored as soon as they can get it fixed, which can happen as early as this afternoon or as late as tomorrow afternoon.”
Mallett said that when water service is restored, a 48-hour boil order will be in place. Approximately 90,000 gallons of water pass through the main each day.
Early Wednesday afternoon, crews began work on repairing the break.
