Knoxville — Attempts to reach the landline phones of Marion County Public Health have been and will remain unsuccessful, as service to the building has been interrupted.
As reported, Windstream had a line affected by water. This knocked out service for phone and Internet services to several customers in Knoxville, including Public Health.
If you have an emergency concern regarding flooding or another environmental health issue, Environmental Health Director Cory Frank can be reached at (641) 891-6123.
Frank shared the information below regarding flooding, boil orders, high water, etc. The Marion County Rural Water main break reported this morning, was found approximately 90 minutes ago. Frank said when water service is restored and the main is repaired, nearly the entire southeastern corner of Marion County will be under a boil order until further notice. Frank said the cause of the break was a landslide, which affected the distribution system.
