The city of Ackley has water again, but are under a boil advisory until further notice.

A water main break forced city officials to shut-off water to the entire community Tuesday morning.  Water was available for emergency purposes only.

City officials say the break, which forced the AGWSR School District to dismiss school at 10 a.m., was fixed around 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.

The DNR says the boil order will remain in effect until two consecutive days of testing show the water is safe to drink.
