Spirit Lake Nation fields complaints about change to water





The Spirit Lake Nation of North Dakota says the drinking water on the reservation is safe despite complaints from some residents.

The tribe switched to a new water treatment system in June, The Grand Forks Herald reported. But some people don't like the taste so the American Red Cross has sent 4,300 bottles to the reservation.

The tribe says the water is cleaner than before.
