Boil advisory ends for residents of Attica

ATTICA, Iowa (AP) — The state Department of Natural Resources says a boil advisory for the south-central Iowa city of Attica has been ended after testing showed the water is safe.

The DNR announced Thursday the advisory that took effect Monday was being lifted after samples showed the water didn’t contain bacteria.

Residents had been urged to boil their water after a water main broke in the Marion County city, temporarily leaving residents without water.

City workers repaired the water main and flushed the line to restore water to residents. The advisory remained in place until testing could be completed.
