GLADSTONE — A water main break in Gladstone has resulted in road closures and a boil advisory.

The water main break occurred before 9 a.m. Wednesday, June 28, on North Antioch Road. As a result, Northeast 68th and Northeast 72nd streets are closed while crews make repairs. 

Public Works Director Tim Nebergall said crews hope to have water on for all residents with full pressure later today.

"Everybody should be in pressure as of now. We've opened an interconnect with Kansas City, Missouri so I believe most everybody should have pressure, even if that's lower than usual," he said.

As a result of the break, there will be a 48-hour volunteer boil advisory in place for the entire city. As it is an advisory, there is no mandate for residents to boil water, but it is recommended. 

"We're going to take some water samples. I don't anticipate any issues, but it will probably be 48 hours before that is lifted," Nebergall said. It generally takes a little while to collect the samples and then 24 hours to get the results, so that's the schedule."
