Residents in part of Griswold are being urged to boil their tap water before consuming it as a precaution after a water main break.
Connecticut Water said the boil water advisory is in effect for around 100 households on the Bay Mountain water system in Griswold due to a water main break that caused a loss of water pressure Wednesday morning.
Connecticut Water said the precautionary boil water advisory will remain in effect until water samples can be collected and tested in a state certified lab to confirm that no bacteria got into the water system.
The company expects to receive these results within 48 hours.
No other Connecticut Water customers are affected, according to the organization.
Once water service is restored, customers of the Bay Mountain water system should boil their tap water as a precaution before using it for drinking, cooking, food preparation, reconstituting baby formula or using for any purpose where it will be consumed, or customers may use bottled water for these purposes, a message Connecticut Water sent to customers says.
The water can be used for bathing, cleaning, sanitation or other purposes where the water is not consumed without boiling as a precaution, the company said.
