Andrews water given all-clear

Andrews residents have been given the approval to use city water for all purposes following a contamination issue.

Town residents were notified by cellphone alerts on Tuesday afternoon after several different tests returned acceptable results.

The tests were conducted by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, the Town of Andrews and the Huntington County Health Department.

The announcement comes 11 days after an advisory was sent againstĀ  consumption and other uses of the water due to high contaminant levels.

The town is still handing out bottles of water for drinking use, notes Deputy Clerk Julie Bowers.
