A boil advisory for the City of Ida Grove is in effect immediately. This includes the entire town and we will update once more information is received.


Hydrant Flushing May 1st – May 20th

The City of Ida Grove will be flushing hydrants starting May 1st thru May 20th. During this time water users may experience low water pressure, discolored water, and air in water lines. Washing light colored or white laundry is not recommended during this time. If laundry becomes stained, do not dry the laundry, but add an iron removal product (Iron Out) in the wash machine and rewash the laundry. Running an outside faucet can eliminate any discolored water or air in water lines. Do not run hot water until the water is clear so that the water heater doesn’t collect sediment.

Thank you, for your understanding during the hydrant flushing exercise. If you have any questions, please contact City Hall at (712) 364-2428.

First Street will experience low water pressure throughout the day as crews work to repair the leak.  Also affected by low water pressure will be those on Susan Lawrence Drive and a portion of Hwy 175.
