City of Dubuque News Release

Boil Water Advisory Canceled

Oct. 27, 2017 -- For Immediate Release

Denise Ihrig, Water Department Manager

DUBUQUE, Iowa  --  The boil water advisory in place for a portion of Dubuque since Wednesday has been canceled/lifted.  Final water test results received this morning confirmed that there was no contamination of the water system in the affected area. 

It is no longer necessary for water customers in the affected area to boil water before drinking/using it.  The tests confirmed that no contamination occurred at any time.

The precautionary boil advisory was issued because of a water main break on Hill Street that caused a loss of pressure in the water distribution system.  There is no need for customers to flush their water lines. 

For more information, please contact the City of Dubuque Water Department at 563-589-4291 or visit
