A boil water advisory has been issued for the Town of Elton.
The advisory was issued because a vehicle hit a water hydrant causing the town to loose water pressure. All residents from the south side of US 190 within city limits are advised to boil water before consumption until the order has been rescinded.
Residents are advised to boil their water for one full minute after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. Water should be boiled prior to all consumption, including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, or food preparation.
