Warren County, IA – According to the statement, the rural water district experienced a ruptured water line that affected water levels and pressure in several water towers.
Officials have announced that nearly 5,900 rural customers are affected.
The city of Indianola operates their own water supply and is not affected by this order.
Repairs were made on Tuesday, but residents should boil water as a precaution.
According to the officials, bring all water used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth or preparing food to a boil.
Boil for one minute and cool before using. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
Tap water can be used for bathing and similar purposes.
The water service will collect and test two sets of water samples, taken at least 16 hours apart, to determine when the water is safe and the advisory can be lifted.
