Parts of Perry are under a precautionary boil water notice.

Pam Ballard, with Perry Water Works, said portions of 15th and 16th Street between Otley Avenue, Estella Street and Iowa Avenue is under a precautionary boil water notice.

“They are on their way to Des Moines to get parts,” she said. “They will come back and they have to put bleach through the line to disinfect it. Then they will have to take samples and send it to Des Moines. Hopefully on the first try with the testing it will be good.”

Tomorrow afternoon, at the earliest, the boil order could be canceled, she said.

She said the people putting in under ground electric hit the water main last night by 15th Street and Otley Street.
