Crews in Blanchard are working to repair a water main break that is causing the town to be without water Tuesday morning.

The break in the 20-inch water main caused everyone who uses Blanchard Water System to be without water until crews get the line repaired, according to the city's administrative assistant.

The water is expected to until later Tuesday evening and users have been placed under a boil advisory.

Because of the water being off for an extended period of time, the water produced by the water supply system is of questionable microbiological quality, according to a release from the city. Customers are asked to please limit water usage until repairs are complete and the advisory has been lifted.

Upon notification from the Office of Public Health’s State Regional Laboratory that the samples collected from the water supply have been found to be safe, the State Health Department will notify the water supply of the sample results.  Then the Blanchard Water System will then rescind the boil advisory and notify its customers that the water has been found to be safe.
