CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

The Department of Natural Resources is lifting the mandatory boil water order for the Cape-­Perry Public Water Supply District (PWSD) #1.

The boil order was issued on May 20.

According to the DNR, chlorine residuals have been confirmed throughout the distribution system and water samples collected on May 21 and 22 tested absent for coliform bacteria.

The boil water order had been issued due to the presence of coliform bacteria in a routine water sample collected on May 13, 2015, and E.coli bacteria analyzed in repeat water samples collected on May 18. 2015.

The boil order had affected the following customers:

  • West of Fruitland going eastward on Hwy. 177 to the Mondi plant, including streets off of Hwy. 177, and Hwy. 61 South towards Jackson.
  • Customers south on Rt. V to Rt. Y to the intersection of Y & W including any streets off of Hwy Y, and County Roads 614 and 616 to the south.
