Boil Advisory Lifted for State Center

Boiling Water

Officials have lifted a boil advisory for the central Iowa city of State Center in Marshall County. The state Department of Natural Resources said Wednesday that water from the area has been tested and determined to be safe.

Officials had advised residents to boil their drinking water due to a water main break Sunday afternoon. The system lost water pressure while the problem was being repaired. Such a scenario creates the potential for bacteria to enter the system.
