HUMBOLDT — Humboldt’s on-again, off-again water issues continued through the weekend, with the city once again suspending operations at its water treatment plant Saturday because of evidence of contamination within the Neosho River.

The suspension was lifted and the water plant reopened Sunday afternoon, when subsequent testing along the Neosho found no more traces of the contaminants, stemming from a fertilizer plant fire in Iola early Wednesday.

“You may resume normal water use without restriction,” the city announced in a press release. “All water in our towers, distribution and our water plant meets federal standards and is safe for consumption.”
