A boil water advisory has been issued for some homes in Winsted after a water main break on Monday.
Officials said the water main break caused the water system to lose pressure around 6 p.m.
"When water mains break, harmful microbes can enter the water system," authorities said in a release.
Crews are working to repair the break, but residents who believe they lost pressure are urged to boil water for the next 2 days until the problem is fixed.
Residents will be informed when tests show that the water no longer needs to be boiled.
