The City of Jacksonville says a water line break has been repaired, but it cautions residents of one small neighborhood to boil their water for the next day.

The City of Jacksonville said Monday morning it has issued a boil water advisory for the Aldersgate Area.

Crews repaired a water main break, but city officials said tap water may appear cloudy. Residents are advised to run the water until it is clear, and still boil it before consumption for the next 24 hours.

"State regulations stipulate that a notification must be given to the public to boil water from the lines as a precaution for health
and safety," said Lisa Miller with the City of Jacksonville. "No contamination has been confirmed at this time. Therefore, the City of Jacksonville is recommending if you live in the affected area, that you boil water for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and food preparation."

The City added to also boil water and cool it down for pets to consume.
