Agency: Spirit Lake water has minerals but is safe

BISMARCK — The Spirit Lake Water Resources Office and its water supplier say tests indicate the water in the Spirit Lake system is safe.

Some people recently said they were concerned about the appearance of their tap water.

The Bureau of Reclamation says that although there's no risk to human health, the system is being adjusted to minimize mineral residue.

The agency says the problem stems from a new water treatment plant producing water with different characteristics and mineral deposits in the old system.
