WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — A boil advisory for West Des Moines has been lifted after a contractor struck and broke a 12-inch water main near the 60th Street and Ashworth Road intersection Wednesday.
Residents within Zone 3 (pictured above) were told to boil their drinking water for 48 to 72 hours before the advisory was lifted Friday morning.
“We are pleased to report that the water main has been repaired and all samples from the affected were clear with no bacteria present,” WDM Water Works General Manager Murphy said in a statement.
“It is no longer necessary or recommended to boil water for drinking or food preparation. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.”
