Water Safe In Madison Again

Water Safe In Madison Again

MADISON, S.D. (AP) — It’s OK to drink the water in Madison again.

The city’s 6,500 residents were told to stop using it late Wednesday when a concrete-and-dirt roof collapsed into an underground well that feeds the city’s water towers, which contaminated the water.

Schools canceled classes Thursday, and bottled water was trucked into town as crews worked to clean up the mess and restore water service.

Residents were told late Thursday they could use the water for showering and doing laundry.

Then on Friday the city said the water was tested at the Sioux Falls Health Lab and deemed safe for all purposes.
