The City of Shawnee remaims under a mandatory boil order after last week's winter storms. On Saturday, city officials said residents must boil water at a hard, rolling boil for at least one minute before consumption of any kind. This includes drinking, any food preparation, brushing teeth, and making ice. In the order, the city said it is very low on chemicals needed at the water treatment plant, stating that the plant used more than a month’s supply during the frigid weather. Shawnee leaders will update residents on the boil order in the coming days.
