NEW INFORMATION: Water boil advisory lifted in Lake Hallie


LAKE HALLIE, Wis. (WEAU)-- A water boil advisory has been lifted in Lake Hallie.

The advisory was put in place Tuesday after Lake Hallie Village President, John Neihart, says something hit a fire hydrant at the corner of Melby St. and Commercial Blvd. The impact ended up breaking the valve at the bottom of the hydrant. That allowed the water to flow, and drained the tower. Neihart also says a system that controls the water level in the water tower failed around noon Monday. That system also controls area wells. No water went into the tower for eight hours.

On Tuesday, people in Lake Hallie were told to boil every drop of water before they used it. On Thursday, the Village Clerk sent out a release saying the water boil advisory was lifted after it got a notification from the DNR that all samples have come back safe.
