BALDWIN, Fla.—A precautionary boil water advisory was issued Tuesday for residents of Baldwin who live on the east side of the railroad tracks on U.S. 90 after a main water break earlier in the morning.

Town officials put out a statement Tuesday afternoon urging all residents of Baldwin in that area to boil their water for at least a minute before drinking or cooking with it.

The notice will remain in effect until a bacteriological survey shows the water is safe to drink again.

Officials said that it usually takes 3 to 4 days for the results to come back. If, after the fourth day, if you haven’t seen an update, officials also said that you can stop boiling your water.
