LABARGE, Wyo. (AP) - Lincoln County officials are telling residents of the western Wyoming town of LaBarge to boil water before using it after inspectors found dead rodents in delivery tanks.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1hiMwwb ) that LaBarge officials found rodents in two tanks that deliver drinking water to the town while trying to make repairs to comply with results of a July Environmental Protection Agency inspection.

EPA spokeswoman Laura Jenkins says the boil order will remain in place until the town disinfects and seals off access to the tanks. Workers will begin that process Wednesday.
