Boil water order in parts of Barre

BARRE, Vt. (WCAX) A boil water advisory has been issued for Barre.

It affects those who live up above the valley floor of Main Street in the higher elevations and who lost water for a bit Wednesday. That includes Westwood Parkway, Palmisano Plaza, Bailey Street, Upper Prospect Street, Richardson Road and surrounding streets in those areas.

Officials say do not drink the water without boiling it for at least one minute first.

City leaders say the water is contaminated due to a water main break. They say crews are working to fix the problem.

The water is expected to be good to go by 2 p.m. Friday.
