Boil order for Solon


SOLON (KWWL) - At 8:00 am Monday morning the city of Solon experienced a water line break from a construction site at the Solon Nursing Care Center on East Fifth Street.

The repair caused most of the city to be without or with low water pressure for five hours. The repair was made and water was restored at 1:15 pm.

The Solon Public Works Department says it increased its level of chlorine to the water supply and will collect bacteria samples Tuesday.

The City spoke with Bill Wyer,  Iowa Department of Natural Resources Water Supply Environmental Specialist, who suggested that the city issue a voluntary boil order for all water used for drinking until the city is able to obtain bacteria analysis results, which are anticipated Thursday.
