MANSON - Manson residents are being asked to boil their water after the city was placed under a boil advisory following three water main breaks this week.
The advisory is in effect until further notice.
One of the breaks happened Wednesday night at the north end of town in Fairgrounds Park, while the others were in a residential area west of the former elementary school.
Marge Insko, assistant city clerk, said all three breaks were repaired by Friday, and the city's water was turned back on after 8 p.m. Thursday.
However, because the system lost pressure, the boil advisory was issued.
Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice or brushing teeth and food preparation until further notice.
