HUMBOLDT Contaminated water spilled from the scene of an early morning fire at Mid-West Fertilizer in Iola has prompted Humboldt to suspend operations at the citys water plant.
Humboldt city officials announced shortly before noon today they were shutting down the plant because of possible contamination in the Neosho River.
With the shutdown, the city has issued a water conservation notice, noting the citys water supply is contained to what is stored in its water towers.
