THORP, Wis (WSAU) There were three leaking pipes near the Thorp water tower, and repairs were being made yesterday afternoon. The public works department estimates more than 300,000 gallons of water were lost.
A boil water advisory remains in effect. City leaders say water quality tests will be done once repairs are finished. They need two passing tests before the water is considered safe to drink and to use for cooking or washing.
Thorp schools were closed yesterday, and are closed again on Tuesday. They're announcing a make-up day on Monday, April 21.
