Excelsior Springs has issued a boil water advisory Friday for most of the city.

The city said the reason for it is because of a water main break near Corum Road.

Officials said the downtown area and east side of the city, east of Old Orchard Avenue, are not effected by the advisory. The rest of Excelsior Springs is advised to boil water for the next 48 hours.

The city said residents should use boiled or bottled water for drinking, food preparation, mixing baby formula, making ice, washing food, manual utensil and equipment washing, rinsing and sanitizing, brushing teeth or any other activity involving the consumption of water.
