DAWSON – The city of Dawson lifted its order to boil city water used for drinking at noon on Tuesday, and informed residents that testing has confirmed the city’s drinking water is safe.

The boil alert was issued Sunday afternoon when water pressure was lost in the community. An electronic system that monitors the water level in the city’s elevated tank malfunctioned and did not alert the city’s water treatment plant. Water levels in the tank dropped too low.

City staff was able to restore pressure within one half hour of the discovery, but Minnesota Department of Health protocol requires that residents be advised to boil any drinking water until testing has been completed.
