PANGBURN (KATV) – The Department of Health issued a ‘boil water’ notice Monday for Pangburn residents with the exception of the Hickory Flat area.

The order was issued as a precautionary measure. According to Pangburn Waterworks, contaminated water might have entered the distribution system.

The water may be unsafe for human consumption, and water used for drinking or food preparation must be boiled briskly for one (1) minute prior to use. All ice cubes should be discarded and only boiled water should be used for making ice.

This precautionary boil water notice will remain in effect until the problem has been resolved, and a bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink.
