CRESTON - A boil advisory has been issued by the Southern Iowa Rural Water Association (SIRWA) and Creston Water Works following issues with the filtration system at the Creston Water Treatment Plant. The SIRWA and Creston Water Works is issuing this drinking water warning to all of their customers.
Due to filtration system issues at the plant, there are increased chances the water may contain disease-causing organisms including bacteria, viruses and parasites, which can cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea and headaches. Residents should boil water used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth or preparing food. Boiling kills any bacteria and other organisms that may be in the water.
Residents should bring water to a boil for one minute and let cool, or use bottled water.
The boil order is in effect until further notice.
For more information, please contact SIRWA at 641-782-5744.
