Line rupture cuts water to Scott County homes; boil order issued

SCOTT CITY, MO (KFVS) -

Some people in Diehlstadt, Benton and other places may not have water at all for several hours Monday, and many others in Scott County should boil their water until further notice due to a water line rupture.

Greg Boyd, treasurer for the Public Water Supply District #4 of Scott County, said it appeared someone hit and damaged a main line sometime Monday afternoon.  The location of the break was not yet known.

The system-wide boil order was issued as a precaution since neither the location of the break nor the extent of the damage was known, Boyd said.

Boyd did not have an estimation as to when the repairs should be complete.
