Water service is back to normal in Carbondale after a short boil water advisory was handed down this week. That's not the case for customers of Osage County Rural Water District No. 5.
Carbondale and rural water district residents had to boil their drinking water from Wednesday to Thursday after a malfunction developed in the water plant, leading to the possibility of untreated sewage heading into the water distribution system.
Lab samples at Carbondale show no contamination. Testing continues for Water District No. 5.
