UPDATE: Ashton Boil Advisory Lifted

Ashton, Iowa — The boil advisory that was put in place for Ashton residents on Tuesday, July 11th has now been lifted.


Ashton, Iowa — There will be NO WATER in the city of Ashton Tuesday, July 11th from 9:00 a.m. until into the afternoon while water main valves are being replaced. In addition to this, there has also been a BOIL ADVISORY issued for that time period. If you have questions, please call 712-724-6167.



A boil advisory has been issued for the City of Ashton Tuesday morning following pressure loss while replacing isolation valves.

As a precaution, residents should boil water used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth or preparing food. Boiling kills any bacteria and other organisms that may be in the water.  Tap water may be used for bathing and similar purposes.  The boil advisory will be lifted once water samples indicate the water is safe to drink.

Residents should bring water to a boil for one minute and let cool, or use bottled water. For more information on guidelines to reduce risk of infection, call the EPA Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 800-426-4791.
