According to the university, the boil water notice will be issued at 5 p.m.

The buildings affected are Deavenport Hall, Dogwood Hall and the G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery Center for America's Veterans at Nusz Hall.

The university says this is due to crews installing a new water main to service the three buildings.

"The new lines is being installed to abandon an older water line," the university stated. "No other campus facilities will be affected by this boil water notice."

Once water samples have been approved, the notice will be lifted.

The university says students, faculty and staff in these buildings may use the water for sanitary purposes, but should not drink the water.
