BUCKNER, MO (KCTV) – UPDATE: This advisory has been rescinded.
All previous coverage is below.
A Boil Water Advisory has been issued for Buckner, Levasy, and Sibley.
Because of a defective pressure-reducing valve between Buckner and Independence, the water pressure has dropped in Buckner.
Therefore, a Boil Water Advisory has been issued.
“Repair of the value is currently being undertaken,” a press release from the city said. “Until the repair has been completed, and in order to return water levels and pressure to normal, a by-pass has been initiated.”
The advisory will be in effect until further notice.
Note that this does not include Water District 16, which gets water from Independence.
