Atchison under boil order

Updated: 2013-12-20T00:34:02Z

The city of Atchison is under a water boil advisory after the water service lost pressure Thursday morning during an emergency repair.

Residents are advised to boil water vigorously for one minute before using it. Water used for bathing does not need to be boiled.

The city announced it will take 24 to 48 hours before testing can be completed and the boil advisory lifted.
