PRAIRIE CITY, Iowa — Residents of a Jasper County town have been unable to use their water for four days.
The city’s wells in Colfax lost pressure due to a pump malfunction Sunday, prompting a citywide boil order.
The city announced Wednesday morning that the boil order has been lifted and the water is now safe to use.
Thanks to nearly 3,000 bottles of water donated by Hy-Vee, classes at the PCM Elementary School were able to stay in session. Fareway in Pella also scheduled a water donation for Wednesday morning.
