The City of Lincoln, MO is under a “voluntary water boil advisory.”  Due to an electrical outage, the city experienced a loss of water pressure for a short amount of time. 

Guidelines for the “voluntary water boil advisory” are:

Boil your water vigorously for at least one minute before drinking or cooking

Don’t use any appliances that might require drinkable water like dish washers, ice machines, drinking fountains, etc.

Don’t use water from the tap to wash food, dishes, or your hands.  Use water that has been boiled and cooled for this purpose.

Food service businesses should follow all applicable state and federal regulations as well.


Water tests are being performed, and as soon as the city gets an “all clear” from the testing facility, they will notify everyone when the advisory has been lifted.
