BROWNSVILLE, Vt. (AP) - Officials say a pump system that provided water to buildings near a former Vermont ski resort is operational, but that a boil water order is expected to remain into next week.

An official with the Valley Artesian Well Company tells the Valley News (https://bit.ly/1JjoUEG ) that a pump system near the former Mount Ascutney base lodge was replaced on Thursday. The system was about 35 years old and officials say it could not be rebuilt. The new system should last two decades.

The pump system failed Sunday night and left homes and businesses without reliable water. The town of Brownsville instituted a boil ban on Monday and had tanker trucks bring water to refill a reservoir serving about 150 residents.

That order is expected to remain in effect until Tuesday.
