Boil Advisory Lifted for Prescott
Posted: 01/17/2014
PRESCOTT – Residents of Prescott in Adams County can drink their tap water again after a boil advisory was lifted today at 3:30 p.m.

The DNR and Southern Iowa Rural Water lifted the advisory after two sets of water samples taken a day apart tested clean for bacteria.

The advisory was issued Wednesday after a contractor hit a water main, causing the town to lose water pressure. Pressure drops can allow bacteria to enter the drinking water.
