DAYTON, Iowa (AP) - Regulators have issued a boil advisory for the small Iowa city of Dayton in Webster County.

The state Department of Natural Resources says the advisory was issued because of a water main break Tuesday night. It caused water from a tower to drain.

Officials say the loss of water pressure can allow bacteria to get into the system. The water is currently being tested and the main is being repaired.

Residents are encouraged to boil water or use bottled water while the advisory is in effect.
