LEGGETT — A Leggett subdivision has been under a boil water notice since last Thursday.

The water line that services the Pratt subdivision off of Marston Road in Leggett experienced a leak, which prompted a repair and a sample of water to be taken to Eastex Environmental Lab Inc. for testing. The Leggett Water Supply Company expected the results of the test to be returned on Wednesday.

“We send it to Eastex Environmental Lab Inc. more as a precaution,” LWS Secretary Andrea Schmidt said. “It normally takes 2-3 business days after (Eastex) receives the sample to get the results back.”

During the process of repairing the leak, the water pressure was high, which prompted the maintenance crew to turn the water off for approximately 10 minutes while they repaired the leak. Even if the boil notice is rescinded, Schmidt said the boil water notice signs must stay posted for at least 10 calendar days.
