Webster County Town Under Boil Advisory
originally posted on January 9, 2017
WEBSTER COUNTY, Iowa — Residents of Lehigh, Iowa, are currently being advised to boil their water.
Officials say the pumps at the city’s water treatment plant failed to refill the water tower. This caused a drop in water pressure and increased the potential for bacteria to get into the system.
The town’s residents have been placed on a boil advisory.
Two sets of water samples taken 24 hours apart must be tested before the water can be deemed safe and the advisory is lifted.
