MAYVILLE — The water boil advisory for Village of Mayville water customers will remain in effect until at least Friday.
Officials said bottled water is being distributed to residents who need it from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. at 2 Academy Street at the pole barn located in the back parking lot.
The order started Monday after service was interrupted due to a water main leak.
The Department says when the distribution pipes and mains lose pressure it increases the chance that untreated water and harmful microbes could enter the system.
Boiling the water kills bacteria and other organisms that could be present.
Water for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth and making coffee must be brought to a rolling boil for 1 minute then cooled prior to use. Officials say do not drink the water without boiling it first or use bottled water until further notice.
Some customers may notice brown water or air in the water when first turning on water taps. Air can be bled out by slowly opening taps and running water at a slow rate.
