ORIGINAL STORY: Fri 11:33 AM, Feb. 14, 2014

Neillsville residents are urged to boil their water following a water main break Thursday that lead to the loss of pressure.

The city sent a news release Friday about the advisory. It stated that the city's water may not be safe for drinking.

Residents are asked to boil the water for one minute at a rolling boil before use. Water needs to be boiled prior to use for dishwashing as well.

Boiled and bottled water should be used until further notice.
