Folks who live in Independence don't have to worry about boiling their drinking water.
Yesterday afternoon state health officials told community members the water supply was ok to use.
Concern over contaminated water shut down schools and businesses in the area.
And this problem has come up more than once.
Town officials say, the well's outdated control system failed, causing water pressure in the area to fall below state standards.
Some say, this is a constant problem, and they want it fixed for good.
