CASSVILLE, Wis. - A boil order was issued Monday for Cassville after E. coli was found in the village's water supply.
According to a post from the Village of Cassville Facebook page, residents have been asked to use bottled water or boil tap water for at least a minute before using it to drink or prepare food.
E. coli was originally found in the local library's water supply.
The village clerk said bacteria was found in a water sample taken at the library Wednesday. A second test done Friday did not show any E. coli presence, but the water did contain other bacteria.
An additional water sample is being tested at a state facility, with results expected to arrive Tuesday.
Cassville officials said they will keep performing follow-up tests until the problem is fixed. Until then, a boil order remains for the village.
