JUNCTION CITY, Kan. (WIBW) - Crews in Junction City are working diligently to restore water to homes in Junction City as issues with the water treatment plant continue.

Junction City says as of 3:48 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 16, parts of the city are without water because of remaining issues at the water treatment plant. It said teams are working to restore the water as soon as possible, but a timeline has not been set.

Earlier Thursday, a precautionary boil water order has been issued for Junction City and surrounding areas.

Dinkel says there’s still water in the system, but residents should boil all water intended for consumption as a precautionary measure.

Customers impacted include all of Junction City, Grandview Plaza and Rural Water Dist. #1.

On Wednesday, 600,000 gallons of water filled the basement of the water treatment plant due to power issues caused by severe weather.

Dinkle did not say when the boil order might be lifted.
