    MADRID, Iowa (AP) - A boil advisory has been issued for the central Iowa city of Madrid.

    The state Department of Natural Resources says the water's level of cloudiness, also known as turbidity, is currently above the standard. That can interfere with disinfection and increase the chances for disease.

    City officials are working on filter changes to resolve the issue. The boil advisory is expected to last several days.

    Residents are encouraged to boil their water. Tap water can be used for bathing and similar uses.
