February 24, 2021

From the

City of Everton



Due to a water main break, all water for the duration of repairing the line was shut off.

1. Boil water vigorously for three (3) minutes before use. Use only boiled water for drinking, brushing teeth, diluting fruit juices, and all other food preparations or consumption. Use of bottled water may be feasible, though relatively expensive, alternative to boiling tap water when under a boil water order,

2, Do not use ice from a household automatic icemaker or use any ice made with un-boiled water from this system. Remake ice cubes with water that has been boiled or buy ice,

3. Disinfect dishes and other food contact surfaces by immersion for at least one minute in clean tap water that contains one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water,


Water used for handwashing or bathing does not generally need to be boiled, Supervision of children is necessary while bathing or using backyard pools so water is not ingested, Persons with cuts or severe rashes may wish to consult their physicians. We will be taking samples to the Health Dept, in Springfield to be tested and will contact you when the order has been lifted. If you have any questions, please contact City Hall at 417-535-4000 or Ida at 417849-16060
