Boil order in Alma continues

The boil order continues in the village of Alma because of cloudy water.

Mayor Kirstin Shortt told the Times and Transcript the village’s water comes from a single well….and increased tourist use this summer overwhelmed the system…it just couldn’t handle the added volume.

She says changes need to be made. Shortt also said health officials will be visiting Alma this week to inspect the well…but there have been no water-related health issues reported during the boil order.
