Northwest Missouri city of Maryville issues boil order

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 | 1:12 p.m. CST

MARYVILLE — Northwest Missouri State University and the city of Maryville are under a boil order that could last through Thursday.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports that the order was issued because of a low-pressure malfunction at the water plant.

The city says residents will experience a loss of water pressure, but regular shower usage may continue. Germicidal soap or hand cleanser should be used when using tap water to wash hands. And water should be boiled before drinking or using it to brush teeth.

Northwest Missouri State University is providing bottled water to students living on campus.
