Boil order for 3 towns lifted

Posted: Updated:

A boil water order that was in effect for the towns of Lilbourn, North Lilbourn and Howardville has been lifted.

Authorities say a pump system failed causing the main water tower to nearly run dry. That could have caused a dangerous build-up of bacteria in the water line that can cause residents to become ill.
