Rycroft has running water, but don't drink it

Tuesday evening the break in the water main was repaired and the water distribution system was re-opened in the Village of Rycroft - but officials say the water still must be boiled.

"Residents should now have water service. Do not drink the water - the boil water advistory will remain  in effect until such time as the laboratory results verify it is safe to consume," say village officials.

Officials note that the water distribution system is re-activated, most water lines will contain some air and water discoloration when opened. This is normal.

"Open taps slowly and the regular steady flow will soon occur."
