ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - Town Manager Chad Whitehead says he expects to lift a precautionary boil water notice for St. Johnsbury this week.

The Caledonian Record reports (https://bit.ly/1Nkbuqp ) municipal water customers in the northern Vermont town were advised to boil water for one minute prior to consumption in an effort to kill bacteria that might have entered the system during a water disruption.

Officials say the boil notice went into effect after a truck backed into a fire hydrant on Mountain Avenue and blew a nearby water valve on Friday.

A portion of the water system was temporarily shut down for repairs. During shutdowns, bacteria could potentially breach the system and contaminate the water supply.

Whitehead says the boil notice will be lifted Wednesday pending the results of a clean water test.
