Bagley continues to cope with water advisory

Video BAGLEY – Three weeks ago, a home owner in Bagley reached out to Local 5 On Your Side, concerned about the town’s water.
But over the weekend, Bagley sent out a water advisory for everyone in town because of elevated manganese levels.
So, we went to figure out exactly what was going on.
Reminders sit above and beside the sink in Pat Smith’s Bagley kitchen.
"I have no idea what it is."
"We would like to see them lower than they are right now."
"If my daughter hadn’t lived next door, I would have been stranded till I called someone," said Smith.
Sheets never uses the tap to drink anyway, so this advisory doesn’t worry her.
said Smith.
Right now, the Department of Public Health says the water concentrations would have to be far higher for there to be any genuine safety concerns.
