Bottled water advisory issued for Malvern, Iowa

MALVERN, Iowa, (WOWT) -- Malvern, Iowa has issued a Bottled Water Advisory effective immediately.

City officials say they have experienced a failure of one of their wells and the remaining well that is operating has a high nitrate level.

Water can be safely used for all household tasks except drinking and cooking.

High nitrate is of significant concern to infants; therefore, this advisory has been issued until further notice.

Boiling intensifies nitrates so that is not a solution for drinking water.
