Boil order issued for Colesburg water system

Posted:
COLESBURG (KWWL) -

The Iowa Dept. of Natural Resources has issued a boil order for the Colesburg water system in Delaware County after a lightning strike knocked out the town's main well early Saturday morning.  The city is switching to an emergency well so the DNR is advising people to boil their water before using it.  They say do not drink water straight from the faucet and to use bottled water for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and in food preparation.  The DNR says the problem may not be fixed until Tuesday.
