Palouse issues water notice for one block
October 7, 2021
PALOUSE - Four businesses using Palouse municipal water were advised to boil water on Oct 4.
The order was lifted at 3 p.m. the next day.
A water main leak on Main Street caused the order. It affected one city block. The grocery store, health clinic, a restaurant, and an antiques store. The restaurant was closed on Monday as part of its normal hours.
"They boiled their water orvv bought water and used it," Palouse Public Works Director Mike Wolf.
The water service line going into the main was broken where it joined the main. Public works added a new fitting to mask the repair, said Wolf.
