Boil Advisory Issued in Le Grand After Water Main Break

LE GRAND, Iowa (AP) — The Department of Natural Resources is recommending that residents of the central Iowa city of Le Grand boil their drinking water.

The DNR made the recommendation Monday after a water main break allowed for possible contamination of the city's water.

Repairs on the main have been completed but testing of water samples won't be completed until Wednesday. Until then, officials recommend that residents boil water for one minute and let it cool before drinking it or using it to prepare food or brush their teeth.

The water can be used for bathing.

Le Grand is a city of about 1,000 people. It's 7 miles southeast of Marshalltown.
