City Secretary Polly Moore says a 6-inch water line ruptured around 10:30 Friday morning, and crews are on the scene to repair it. They don't know how long it will take to repair, nor what caused the water line break.
As a precaution, a boil advisory has been issued for all human and animal consumption until further notice while tests are completed for any bacteria or microbes that could contaminate drinking water.

Tips for boiling water:
It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods by the following means:
Boil water for one (1) full minute in a clean container. The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. (The flat taste can be eliminated by shaking the water in a clean bottle or pouring it from one clean container to another, or by adding a pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled).
