Clinton, Iowa, businesses contend with boil advisory after water main break

CLINTON, Iowa – Staffers at Homer’s Deli know all about making things from scratch.
As lunch customers line up on Tuesday, February 6, there are some changes at the popular eatery.
It’s the aftermath of the water main break that’s forcing a city-wide boil advisory.
"It was an unusual situation," said Lisa Reisen, Iowa American Water.
At the Sweetheart Bakery, making Tuesday’s treats also involved boiling water.
And at Homer’s Deli, they had to adjust some cooking methods and turn off the pop machine.
"I’ve got canned pop back there," she continued.
The water is already okay for bathing, washing and other common uses.
"Yesterday was it."
"It’s a process," Thornton concluded.
