In order to address the break, the Lynchburg Department of Water Resources must shut off the water to the neighborhood so the section of pipe can be replaced.
The repairs are expected to be completed in approximately six hours and water will then be turned back on, according to Water Resources Spokesperson Jes Gearing.
The boil advisory will last 48 hours.
Residents of Yorkshire Circle, Nottingham Circle, Cornwallis Drive and Chesterfield Place should boil or use bottled water for drinking, food preparation or ice preparation until further notice, according to the city press release on the advisory.
The break was initially discovered by crews around 8 a.m. Monday morning.
According to Gearing, there is no construction in the area and the break is likely due to the fluctuation in temperatures between above and below freezing.
