KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A power issue at a water pump station in Kansas City, Mo., has left many residents with low water pressure Tuesday afternoon.
According to Kansas City Water Services, customers from 43rd Street south to 87th Street, and from the Blue Ridge Cutoff east to the city's eastern city limits may be affected.
Additionally, a boil advisory was issued just before 6 p.m. from Interstate-70 south to 87th Street, and from the Blue Ridge Cut-off east to city-limits. It's expected to last for 24 hours.
Crews are working to restore power. Until then, the city asked that residents use water sparingly.
Just before 5 p.m., Raytown, Mo., issued a water restriction. Anyone caught watering outside, filling a swimming pool or washing a car can be ticketed.
The city of Lee's Summit, Mo., also asked residents to voluntarily reduce their water usage. The power outage has stalled the delivery of about one-third of the 21.5 million gallons the city gets from Kansas City and Independence each day.
Residents in Blue Springs, Mo., have been asked to conserve water by not watering outside.
Customers in Water District #2 in Jackson County are also being impacted by the outage. For a map of the area affected, go to http://bit.ly/O1QZNY
People living in the district are prohibited from washing their vehicles, cleaning the outside of buildings, filling any kind of swimming pool and watering lawns or ornamental ponds and fountains until further notice.
