Boil order lifted in Hecker

The Village of Hecker posted that effective Saturday morning, July 15, a boil order was in effect for the entire village water system. The boil order was lifted early Sunday afternoon.

“Water used for drinking, cooking, tooth brushing, dishwashing, pet watering and baby formula making must be brought to a rolling boil for one minute before using,” the village post stated Saturday. “The water is OK to use for laundry, general cleaning and plant watering.”

The boil water order was to be in effect until revoked by the village after complying with appropriate EPA testing.

A similar boil order had also been issued in nearby Smithton, but that was lifted on Sunday as well.
