Town loses water service after tower freezes

EVANSDALE — Water pressure has returned in a northeastern Iowa town after its water tower froze in the arctic freeze that’s covering the Midwest. The Waterloo suburb of Evansdale lost water service for a time Monday, but it’s back to a nearly normal level. Mayor Doug Faas said Tuesday that water is being run directly from the wells into the system, bypassing the suspected ice blockage in the tower. A city staffer is expected to climb up to the tower to see what’s wrong.
