Nokomis Suffers Second Water Main Break in a Week
Fri, 12 Apr 2019 10:51:36 CDT
For the second time in less than a week, the City of Nokomis suffered a major water main break.
The most recent incident occurred Thursday afternoon near the corner of South Elm Street and Route 16 in front of Route 16 Grain, according to Public Information Officer Joe Gasparich. The break occurred around 4:20 p.m. with service being restored to customers at around 8:45 p.m.
Despite water service being restored, however, the entire city is currently under a boil order until further notice. Gasparich says that water should be boiled before it is consumed, but for uses such as laundering and sanitation, it is okay to use.
This marks the second water main break in Nokomis this week. The main at the corner of Hickory Street and Route 16 broke early Tuesday morning, causing customers to be without water for five hours.
