Water Situation in Barnesville Returns to Normal with Boil Advisory Lifted and Water Tower Back Online
Barnesville, MN — Good news for Barnesville residents! The city lifted their boil water advisory on Monday afternoon after a weekend storm briefly shut down their water system. The boil water advisory was a precautionary measure that was issued after a lightning stroke caused a temporary loss of water pressure making the system susceptible for contaminants to enter the system, as explained by Barnesville Mayor Jason Rick.
While the boil water advisory was in place, Mayor Rick says city staff and first responders stepped up to make sure residents had good, clean drinking water available while they waited for their test results.
Also on Monday morning, the City of Barnesville put their water tower back online now that the rehab project is complete, which should help avoid any issues like what happened this weekend.
The city of Barnesville encourages residents to sign up for Cass Clay Alerts to be instantly notified of emergency notices and important information, such as the boil water advisory. Sign up online at www.cassclayalerts.gov.
