CLOVERDALE -- A water main break in Cloverdale on Saturday has put the town under a boil order until further notice.
According to utility department manager Don Guthrie, the main break on Saturday caused some residents to have low water pressure and others to be without water. IDEM regulations require that a boil order be issued under these circumstances.
Guthrie said samples were collected on Sunday and are to be collected again today. If the tests come back clean, the order will be lifted.
"We have the order until further notice, but we're hoping it can be taken off Wednesday. I can't guarantee that; we'll have to wait on the samples," Guthrie said.
Cloverdale water customers should boil water for five minutes before drinking or cooking with it.
