LAFAYETTE/SALINE COUNTY, Mo. — Residents of Emma have been placed under a 48-hour boil advisory.

Repairs have been completed on a water main break reported earlier in the week, however contamination of the water is a hazard, according to authorities.

The advisory, which took effect at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday, will remain in place until 10:00 a.m. on Thursday.

Until that time, any water used for cooking or consumption should be brought to a rolling boil for at least two minutes before use.
