Bourbon Under Boil Advisory Until Thursday

BOURBON – All Bourbon residents were put under a boil water advisory as of about 9 a.m. Monday as the town worked on resolving a water pressure problem.

The town’s Facebook page stated the boil water advisory would be in effect until at least Thursday. Testing has to occur, and the town has to receive two good tests before the advisory can be lifted.

There was a malfunction in one of the computers, and the town believes it might have been caused by a lightning strike Sunday morning.

The water plant was back up and running by about 1 p.m. Monday, but the boil advisory won’t be lifted until Thursday.

The town of Bourbon will be providing water coolers to the local school buildings to protect the students and staff during the water boil advisory, according to the Facebook page.
