MESERVEY | The city of Meservey is advising residents to boil water before drinking it or cooking with it.
Officials on Monday said the city’s water system experienced low pressure, causing the potential for bacteria to enter it.
Water should be boiled to kill potential bacteria and other organisms until testing indicates it is safe to drink.
Residents should let water boil for one minute, then cool it before using. They should use boiled or bottled water for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth and food preparation until further notice.
Tap water can be used for bathing and similar purposes.
The city says it will notify residents when water is safe to drink and the advisory is lifted.
