HUMBOLDT — Contaminated water — spilled from the scene of an early morning fire Wednesday at Mid-West Fertilizer in Iola — has prompted Humboldt to suspend operations at the city’s water plant.

The city remained at risk of losing its water service altogether, once its water towers are emptied.

As of Friday morning, the city still had water in its towers, “but they’re getting pretty low,” City Administrator Cole Herder.
