The City of Sutherland has issued the boil advisory due to the loss of electricity at the water tower, which caused the system to lose pressure. Officials say that makes it possible for bacteria to enter the system.

Sutherland officials say the boil advisory is a precautionary advisory.

Water samples are being taken on Sunday, June 19th, and Monday, June 20th.

The order says, “Please boil your drinking water until further notice. We will have more information once samples are tested. Thank you.”
