The City of Kalona with the DNR has issued a voluntary boil order for the area of 7th to 14th Street and from J Avenue North to city limits.

Water mains have been shut down due to a broken water main at 6th Street and H Avenue. There is no known cause for the break. The water will be sampled today and Thursday with results expected on Friday. The City of Kalona advises people in the affected areas to boil water vigorously for three minutes prior to use, do not use ice made from unboiled water, and disinfect dishes and food surfaces with clean tap water that contains one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water.
