(KMOV.com) – Officials in De Soto are warning residents that a boil order will soon go into effect after a water line ruptured on Sunday.

The ruptured line is located on Dewitt near the East Kingston Bridge around 5:00 p.m. The cause is unknown, but the public works department is handling the situation.

Crews had to build an access road and shut off the water before they could fix it.

About 217 residents are currently without water.

According to the De Soto Police Department's Facebook page, the problem should be fully resolved by Monday. A specific time was not given.
