People who live in the area have been told to boil their water before drinking it. Boiling kills the bacteria and other organisms in the water.
Town leaders say a water sample tested positive for E. coli on July 8, almost two weeks before the warnings were made.
A boil water alert means that boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice. Bring the water to a boil, let it boil for three minutes and let it cool before using, or use bottled water.
E. coli can cause nausea, cramps, diarrhea and/or headaches.
Town leaders say they are flushing pipes, increasing chlorination,and performing more follow-up tests to fix the problem.
The notice uploaded to the county website said to continue boiling water until they residents the tests show no bacteria.
