DEXTER, Iowa (AP) – A pipeline leak has forced Dexter officials to ask residents to limit their water use. Des Moines television station KCCI reports that workers had begun repairs but it was uncertain when they would be finished. Mayor Jerry Stiles says the leak began Thursday in a pipeline that runs six miles from a well near Redfield. Stiles says water quality is not affected.

Dexter is a Dallas County town of about 1,000 people that sits 30 miles west of Des Moines.
