Akeley water possibly contaminated
Akeley residents are being told, "Do not drink your water. The city of Akeley water is possibly contaminated."
A bolt on the lock at the water tower was broken sometime Monday night and until tests are completed by the Minnesota Department of Health, residents are advised water should be used only for flushing toilets or watering lawns.
The problem is expected to be resolved within 48 hours.
