A water main break has prompted a boil water advisory in the town of Fairmount.

Water Works Superintendent Steve Deal says it is a precautionary measure.

People in Fairmount should boil drinking water for 5 minutes before using it.

Water customers are also being asked to conserve water for the next few days, until the advisory is lifted.

Fairmount plans to sample the town's water supply on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday to make sure it is safe to drink again.

Until then, the boil water advisory will remain in effect.
