BISMARCK, N.D. — A boil order for tap water in communities in Divide and Burke counties will remain in place at least until Tuesday.
Residents of communities including Crosby, Fortuna, Noonan and Columbus were told last weekend to boil tap water or use bottled water after a break in a Western Area Water Supply Authority pipeline underneath a wetland.
A temporary line was put in place, but the boil order remained in effect. The state Health Department says a permanent line should be in place by early Saturday. However, the system still will need to be flushed and the water will need to be tested for safety. Officials hope to take samples Monday and have results in 24 hours.
