4 Keokuk County communities under boil advisory
The Wapello Rural Water Association has issued a boil advisory for the cities of Harper, South English, Kinross, and rural Keota, as well as the surrounding areas until further notice.
About 11:20 a.m. Tuesday, the WRWA reported a water main break at 190th Street in Keota.
Due to the potential for bacterial contamination, authorities recommend water be boiled before consumption.
The system has been repaired and repressurized, but the boil advisory won’t be lifted until bacteria sample results come back clean.
The WRWA will contact those affected by the boil advisory once it’s been lifted.
