Water restrictions lifted in Madison

Posted: Updated:

Residents in Madison can brush their teeth and drink -- water -- freely once again.

The city boil order was lifted around 1 this afternoon.

Water restrictions went into place after a cover on the city's well collapsed -- dropping dirt and debris into the clean water supply.

The total water ban was difficult to deal with, especially at local businesses and the area hospital.

A testing facility in Sioux Falls cleared the water for consumption, ending the dangerous situation.
