Manson water main break

MANSON – Water has been turned off in Manson while city crews repair three water main breaks. School at Manson Northwest Webster has been canceled due to the water shutoff.

The Iowa DNR reports that one of the breaks has been fixed, and crews are at work on the other two. No estimate was available of when they may be finished. The breaks were related to the cold and dry weather. Manson will be under a boil order when water comes back on, until the pipes are flushed and the city can test for bacteria.
