MOUNTAIN GREEN, Utah (AP) - Residents in a small Utah town are being advised to boil their drinking water after someone broke into a water storage tank.

The Cottonwood Mutual Water Company issued the warning to customers in the Morgan County town of Mountain Green after discovering the breech during a routine inspection on Monday.

The company says sometime between Feb. 6 and Monday, “someone broke and removed the lock securing one of our lower storage tank access lids.”

Ryan Dearing, with Utah Division of Drinking Water, says officials hope to receive water testing results by Tuesday.

Cottonwood Water Mutual Co. cautions people in the town that until testing results are confirmed on Wednesday, they should boil their drinking water for one minute before using it.
