Drinking water still a top priority at Rocky Boy
Last updated ERROR at ERROR
Despite nearly nonstop work for almost three weeks to alleviate flood damage at Rocky Boy's Indian Reservation, providing safe drinking water remains a concern.
"We're hoping people won't drink their water without boiling it for at least three minutes," Neal Rosette, Rocky Boy's public information officer, said this morning.
After a mid-June rainstorm dropped five inches of water in two days, substantial flooding at the reservation wiped out water supplies to hundreds of homes, destroyed roads, bridges and culverts, and damaged public and private buildings on the reservation.
