(Minburn, IA) -- Residents in Minburn, in Dallas County, are asked to find an alternative drinking water source, due to a water main break. Residents are asked to use bottled water for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth or preparing food. Tap water should not be given to infants in infant formula.
Tap water can safely be used for bathing and similar uses. Do not boil the water as it may increase manganese levels.
The pressure loss affected the entire town. While repairing the first leak, contractors found another leak. As they complete repairs Tuesday, water lines will be disinfected and flushed.
Once all the mandatory water samples are clear, the advisory will be lifted.
