MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - The mayor of the southwestern Oregon city of Gold Hill is advising residents to boil water before drinking it in the wake of several waterline breaks.

The Mail Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2em3r4O ) that Mayor Jan Fish says breaks occurred in three places around 1 p.m. Wednesday. Crews had repaired one broken pipe by the evening.

Some areas of the city are experiencing reduced water pressure while the repair work is underway.

The water is not chlorinated, and tests to determine whether it’s safe to drink take 24 hours.

Fish says the water system will be chlorinated Thursday and that drinking water will be made available at City Hall.
