Mount Hope water system under boil advisory

— A boil water advisory has been issued for the City of Mount Hope water system due to a main line break.

Consumers are advised to bring all water to a full rolling boil, let it boil for one minute and let cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, bathing, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
