CRAWFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi State Department of Health issued a boil water notice for the town of Crawford.

The MSDH website states the notice as issued because of a loss of water pressure when someone ran into a fire hydrant.

The notice affects 1050 customers who get water from the system in Lowndes County.

Customers are urged to boil their water for at least one minute before drinking.

The notice will be lifted when testing shows water is at safe drinking levels.
