Boil Order In Place In Fairmount, ND

Posted: Updated:

The southern valley town of Fairmount, North Dakota is lifting its water restrictions tonight, but is still asking residents to boil water after the city experienced a failure of the city wells.

The mayor tells Valley News Live that a well had a crack in its casing which forced packing sand used around the well into the city's system.

The well has been temporarily repaired and more water was brought in to keep the town's water tower from freezing.

The Red Cross also helped distribute bottled water to residents this morning.
