Businesses in Washington were affected with the boil order earlier this week. Most businesses had to post signs on the door letting customers know about the water issues. Retail establishments that supply bottled water saw an increase in sales. Hy-Vee Store Director Chuck Underhill says he saw sales in bottled water increase two to three fold. He says they had plenty of supply on hand for sale.
Lara Williams with Dodici Shop says they were not affected by the boil order. She says they have a Reverse Osmosis system that filtered the water. Williams says they were busier than normal on Monday because many other businesses were closed.
