WEST POINT, GA (WTVM) - The city of West Point experienced a substantial water main break Wednesday around 1:05 a.m.

The leak caused pressure in parts of the system to drop to dangerously low levels causing a potential health hazard.

In order to protect the public from a potential health hazard, all citizens who have experienced water outages and low water pressure are advised to “boil” all water prior to use for drinking, cooking, or preparing baby food.

It is advised that the water be boiled for at least one minute after reaching a rolling boil.

Citizens should continue to boil their water until they are notified by the city that the water has been restored.
