Reinbeck issues planned boil order beginning tonight

Posted: Updated:

The City of Reinbeck will be entering a planned boil order on Monday night, as officials work to complete a valve replacement.

According to a city announcement, the valve in question has been leaking for a number of years. The project will begin tonight at 10 p.m., and is expected to be completed before 6 a.m. tomorrow morning. 

Reinbeck is issuing a boil order coinciding with the project, which will also require that the water be shut down overnight. The announcement says that the boil order applies to all city water, and will require people to boil water that is meant for consumption and cooking. Water is still safe for bathing and other uses during the order.

The city will lift the boil order after two consecutive "good" tests, which is expected later this week after two to three days.
