UPDATE: Evansdale receives water donations as water tower freezes, boil order issued
In the meantime, Waterloo Community Schools is working to address the water boil order at its buildings in Evansdale.
Officials said bottled water will be available during the school day at Poyner Elementary and Bunger Middle schools.
Bathrooms are safe to use and will be stocked with hand sanitizer.
School meals will be safely prepared offsite and brought in to serve.
Faas noted that the Salvation Army of Waterloo-Cedar Falls brought 36 cases of drinking water to the city’s Community Response Center for the public to use.
Also, Kwik Star stores were delivering five pallets of drinking water to the Community Response Center and available for the public after 4 p.m. Tuesday.
"I’m pleasantly surprised both of them," Faas said of the donations.
They have their own people to take care of.
For them to donate 36 cases, I’m pleasantly suprised.
And Kwik Star has been a very good corporate neighbor for our community ever since they built here.
