GOLD HILL, Ore. (AP) - Residents of Gold Hill are being urged to boil their water until further notice because of possible bacterial contamination from a loss of pressure in the water system.

The Medford Mail Tribune reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/2dbG5cX) that the problem has been fixed and authorities expect the water in the southern Oregon town will be safe to drink within 72 hours.

Until then, the water should be brought to a rolling boil for a minute and then be allowed to cool.

The boiled water should be used for drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, washing produce, making baby formula, making ice and cleaning kitchen surfaces.
