Hannibal Board of Public Works officials say a Thursday water main break interrupted service for some customers including the Hannibal Regional Hospital campus.

Vice President of Facilities Doug Ruble says patients and staff are using bottled water and trucked in ice during the resulting boil order. HRH officials say all necessary steps are being taken to cover needs of their patients. BPW says a twelve inch main broke in the area of County Road 412 and Lindsey Road. Once repairs are complete and normal water pressures are restored… a 48 hour precautionary boil order will be issued for the affected area.
