MURRAY, Iowa (AP) - The Department of Natural Resources has announced a boil advisory for part of the town of Murray, in south-central Iowa.

The advisory was issued for the northern part of the city after a water main break on Wednesday. The advisory applies to portions of the city north of Fifth Street.

The break caused a loss in water pressure, which can potentially allow bacteria into the system. Repairs were made Thursday morning and the system was being flushed. The boil advisory will remain in place until two sets of bacteria samples have been taken, and both show the water is safe.

Residents are advised to boil the water for a minute, and then let it cool before using. Water should be boiled for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth and preparing food.
