Wellman Residents Warned About Drinking Water
WELLMAN, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is warning people in Wellman to drink bottle water only. This after a water line in the Washington County town burst Thursday morning, bypassing the reverse osmosis system used to reduce nitrates in the water supply.
Repairs are underway, but sampling needs to be done before the DNR can say the water is safe to drink. Officials say boiling will not remove the contaminants from the tap water.
