LAUGHLIN, Nev. (AP) - Residents of Laughlin have been warned to boil their water before drinking after flood waters entered the town’s drinking water supply.

KLAS-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1TLEKcf ) that scientists will do more testing Monday to assess contamination.

The Las Vegas Valley Water District says storm conditions made the Colorado River, which is Laughlin’s drinking water source, murky from floods Saturday.

Water District officials handed out 300 cases of bottled water at the Laughlin Government Center for residents and pets to drink.

Las Vegas Valley Water District spokesman Bronson Mack says the boil advisory could be over Monday or Tuesday, depending on how long it takes to clear the river of sediment.
