(Pisgah) Pisgah in Harrison County issued a boil advisory after a complete pressure loss throughout the water distribution occurred last night.
An electrical contact on one of the pumps tripped out and prevented the wells from turning on. The electrical problem has been repaired and pressure has been restored, but the drop that occurred in water pressure could possibly allow bacteria to enter the drinking water.
As a precaution, the city and DNR recommend residents boil water used for drinking and cooking, or use bottled water until test results for bacteria come back clean. Two sets of samples are required so it will be Sunday before the city is affirmed that the water is safe to drink.
