Boil Order In Effect For Portions Of Five Iowa Counties
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has issued a boil order for potions of Pottawattamie, Harrison, Shelby, Audubon, and Cass Counties.
According to the Iowa DNR, this boil order includes residents and businesses that are served by the Regional Water Rural Water Association. Residents and businesses are advised to boil their water before using it. This is due to a problem in the distribution system resulting in a loss of pressure. This advisory has been issued as a precaution until bacteria sample results are available. The system is in the process of being repaired and repressurized, and bacteria samples will be collected. Residents and businesses are being notified via phone calls, Facebook, and through local county Emergency Management Administrators. It’s recommended to only drink the water after boiling it first. The water may be used for bathing and other similar purposes. It is advised to use boiled and/or bottled water for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, and food preparation. Affected residents and businesses will be notified when the results are available, and the advisory is lifted.
