KINGSTON, N.Y. (AP) - Health officials in a New York town have ordered businesses and residents to boil all their water after a malfunctioning chlorine injector was discovered at the town’s water plant.

Kingston Health Department officials expect the boil-water advisory to last into Saturday afternoon.

The Times Herald-Record (https://bit.ly/1p46XMz ) reports business were running out of bottled water on Friday.

A hospital spokeswoman tells the newspaper patients were given bottled water as part of a routine disaster scenario that officials prepare for.

Pizzeria owner Vincenzo Barese says he boiled 75 gallons of tap water as soon as he heard of the advisory, just in case.

The Hudson Valley town is about 91 miles north of New York City.
