    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    If I had to guess I would say that because the break did not contaminate the integrity of the water SOURCE. So once the new water lines were flushed they were good to go because the source water was clean.

    Or that the municipalities are over conservative and they don't want to get sued.....


    Todd, I would suspect the overly conservative, don't get sued..... is the reason.

    Funny. I asked the local water people here on the Missouri side this morning. I ran into them and thought I'd ask about the boil orders. They don't do this, flush the lines and good to go. They did say boil orders are most likely because some cities are cautious about getting sued if someone thinks their water doesn't seem right after a break.

    I don't know for sure, but it is probably for safety purposes. Individual lines are not washed out so warn the homeowners, and maybe the city forwards a sample to a lab for testing.
    Each homeowner near a break should run lots of water to make sure their is not contamination.
