UPDATE: Ackley has water again, but boil order now in place


The city of Ackley has water again after a water main break forced them to shut-off water to the entire community Tuesday morning. But, a boil order is now in place.

City officials say the break, which forced the AGWSR School District to dismiss school at 10 a.m., was fixed at around 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.

The Iowa DNR says a boil order is now in place and will remain until two consecutive days of testing shows that the water is safe to drink.
