Water boil advisory area

A water boil advisory was issued for this part of Dubuque after a water main break Monday. 

Officials have lifted a boil advisory issued Monday night for about 200 residences near Gay Park in Dubuque.

Two consecutive sets of samples showed no presence of bacteria, according to the City of Dubuque.


The declaration was made in the wake of a water main break near the intersection of Muscatine and West 28th streets that caused a loss of pressure in the water distribution system. That raised the possibility of “bacterial contamination,” according to a city press release.
