CRYSTAL LAKE, Iowa (AP) — The cities of Crystal Lake and Conrad have issued boil advisories due to water main breaks.
The state Department of Natural Resources said in a news release Monday that residents in both cities are being encouraged to boil their water for drinking and cooking. People can also use bottled water.
The advisories affect all of Crystal Lake and a southern third of Conrad. The advisories could be in effect for several days as the water is tested for bacteria.
