Blaine water system failure forces school closings

Citizens of Blaine have been asked to boil their water for the next 24 hours after a failure of the city’s water supply.

Pat Pheifer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

City officials in Blaine said Sunday afternoon that the city’s water system is up and running. But they urged residents to continue to boil drinking water until Monday afternoon, just as a precaution.

Because of the problems, Blaine schools will be closed Monday. If a student goes to another school but gets picked up at a Blaine school, the bus will be there to transport them. The closed schools are Jefferson Elementary; Johnsville Elementary; Madison Elementary; University Avenue Elementary, Roosevelt Middle School and Blaine High School.
