Water to be shut off tonight for Oregon-Forest City residents

Posted Sep 15, 2020 7:40 PM

Water will be shut off for the residents of Oregon and Forest City late tonight to make repairs to the water system between the two cities.

The city water supply will be shut off at 10 o’clock this evening. Oregon city officials expect the water to be shut off for up to three hours. Missouri Department of Natural Resources regulations require the city to issue a boil order afterward until further notice.

City officials had planned to make the repairs last week, but had to postpone them until tonight.
