OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Some towns are facing a different kind of water problem because of the floods. Lincoln just lifted its order to cut back on water use.

The city of Glenwood, Iowa, however, is still under a boil order. MUD and others are taking water to the city.

Schools there are using port-a-potties and handwashing stations. Students are relying on bottled water and the cafeteria is using disposable trays and utensils.

School leaders say they are using between 150 and 200 cases of water a day for their two-thousand students.
