BARNUM - Due to a break in a water main, Barnum residents are advised to boil their water until further notice.
According to Barnum Mayor Paul Gardner, a leak was discovered in a water main on the east side of town late Wednesday night.
The boil advisory is for residences within the Barnum city limits.
On Thursday, the city made arrangements with Phil Hood Excavation of Clare to fix the water main.
"We'll lift the advisory as soon as we can," he said.
Under a boil advisory, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that water be brought to a rolling boil for one minute before it is consumed.
