ELK RIDGE CITY (ABC4 News) – Elk Ridge City officials are urging residents to boil their drinking water after a water main break Thursday night.

City officials said there was a break in the main water line around 9 p.m., and due to the break rocks and dirt go into the pipeline.

The city said it will be testing the water for contamination, but it takes at least 24 hours to get results.

“Until samples can confirm the status of the water quality you are advised to boil the water before using,” said the city in a message shared on Facebook.

The message goes on to say that this is an advisory and not an order because there have been no confirmed results for contaminants in the system.

City officials said they will provide further updates when they receive test results.
