FLOOD DAMAGE WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT PROJECT
BOIL ORDER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT
PIPELINE REPLACEMENT PROJECT NO. 1
WEST TARKIO RIVER CROSSING
A new 600 feet length of 10" restraint joint pipe was directional bored under the West Tarkio River and adjacent farm ground on April 18th. The Iowa DNR requires that water samples be collected and tested for coliform bacteria when a new section of water main is constructed in public drinking water systems.
The S.W. Regional Water District collected the first set of water samples in the southwest service area and shipped them to a state certified lab.
A second set of samples will be collected and shipped tomorrow.
A boil order advisory remains in effect for the following SWRWD customers until all test results are confirmed by the lab that the water samples do not contain any impurities:
