The county is advising people to boil all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth or washing dishes or use bottled water as an alternative.

The boil water advisory will be lifted once the county determines the water is safe to drink by testing bacteriological samples. Officials said the advisory will last at least through Wednesday.
