Warrenton residents warned to boil water

Posted July 13

— A water main break early Sunday may have introduced contamination into the water supply in Warrenton, Town Commissioner Woody King said, and residents are asked to boil water before using it for cooking or drinking.

King said the break, at Brehon and Fairview Streets, happened between 4 and 6 a.m. and had been repaired by noon.

Nonetheless, he said, some residents might see low water pressure and all should boil water as a precaution for at least 24 hours.
