ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) -- The city of Aberdeen is under a boil water alert until further notice.
The Mississippi State Department of Health issued the alert after informing city officials of a bad water sample.
Health officials say a water sampling showed the presence of E. coli.
The advisory affects the entire city of Aberdeen, approximately 5,000 customers, who receive their drinking water from the Aberdeen Water System.
City officials say they are working to figure out the problem and hope to have it cleared up no later than Wednesday.
Until then, it is recommended that people in the city boil water for one minute before consuming.
