Drinking water boil advisory for Lu Verne lifted
Originally posted on August 3, 2016
LU VERNE, Iowa — The Iowa DNR reports a boil advisory has been lifted for the city of Lu Verne.
Officials said the advisory was originally issued in anticipation of maintenance on the water tower.
The DNR said that after finding out that the tower maintenance is going to take longer than expected, the city will instead bypass the tower using pumps meaning water pressure will be maintained and a boil advisory will not have to be implemented.
The water in the tower will be tested and brought back online only after water samples indicate it is safe.
