Water advisory lifted for Pilot Mound

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — State officials say an advisory asking Pilot Mound residents to boil tap water or use bottled water for infants under 6 months old has been lifted.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources issued the alert on Oct. 24 when the city began using water from an emergency well after the primary well couldn't meet the demand. Since the emergency well hadn't been tested recently, the water quality wasn't known.

Officials say subsequent testing of the water from the emergency well has found the water to be safe.
