Lawson Under Boil Order

A northwest Missouri town was without water after a main break that forced local schools to close and will require residents to boil water before drinking it at least until Saturday.

Lawson City Administrator Bryan Richison says workers noticed water tower levels getting low around 1 a.m. Thursday. KSHB reports city crews found a 6-inch break in a 12-inch water main about an hour later. Richison says the break was fixed around 11 a.m. Thursday and pressure was slowly building up in the water system. Residents are asked to boil water until test results come back Saturday and the water is determined safe to drink.
