Water main break leads to boil water advisory

Posted: Updated:
ANAMOSA (KWWL) -

Anamosa had a water main break Wednesday night on one of its larger mains, east of Highway 151. 

The city says because of a frozen valve, city crews could not isolate where it broke which affected how they were able to make repairs. That lowered the water pressure on the east side of town for several hours.

The city says a boil order is not required, but an advisory has been issued. People can boil drinking water if they want to, but it is not required. The city is still doing bacteria testing as a precautionary measure.
