UPDATE: Madison under water restriction

Posted: Updated:

The city of Madison is under a water restriction. Madison Mayor Roy Lindsay confirms that a roof collapsed over a well at the treatment center, contaminating the water.

This tank is underground and contained clean water, which is pumped directly to the water tower.

That water will have to be pumped out, which is a process that will last through the night, into Thursday morning.  At that point, a number of tests will have to be run to ensure the water is fit for use.

Lindsay anticipates high winds and blizzard conditions overnight will hinder this process. He has asked the local school district to consider closing schools Thursday.

Citizens are asked not use any water if possible. All water must be boiled before it's used.

According Public Works, this is expected to last for at least the next 24 hours.
