The water main break at F Ave. and 18th St. NW has also led to a boil advisory in parts of Cedar Rapids.

You can read that information below.

A water main break is proving to be disruptive in Cedar Rapids this morning.

It happened at F Ave. and 18th Street NW. The city says the water main break has created a potential for bacteria contamination.

People who live in the following areas should consider boiling water to protect themselves: F Avenue NW  to the north, 25th Street SW to the west, 16th Avenue SW to the south and 13th Street SW to the east.

Anyone who’s pregnant, nursing, or has a baby younger than 6 months old should use bottled water only.

Crews have started making repairs. The city expects the results of water tests to be in by Saturday afternoon. The advisory will be lifted or extended at that time.
