Ottumwa boil order lifted

A boil order issued last week for flooded areas south of Ottumwa has been lifted.

Resident living along Rabbit Run Road, River Road, 60th Street and MIller Chapel Road had been advised to boil their water since late last week.

On Monday morning, a Wapello Rural Water Association press release said that bacteria is not present in the water and chlorine levels are acceptable, thus the boil order had been lifted.
