Andrews, IN, population 1149, without drinking water

A disagreement has left Hoosiers in Andrews in an "impossible situation."

 

The town has been under a Do Not Drink order after a water well tested positive for fifteen times the safe level of vinyl chloride. The Journal Gazette reports that the Department of Environmental Management says Andrews can drop the order once the well is shut down and flushed out. But the town says they can't do that because they wouldn't have enough water pressure to fight fires.

 

The Do Not Drink order is still in effect and it's unknown when residents will be able to use the town water again.
