Boil order issued for Thomaston residents

THOMASTON, GA (WTVM) -- Residents in Thomaston have been asked to boil any water they plan of drinking as crews work to resolve mechanical issues with the city's water system.

Craig Sorensen with Southwest Water in Birmingham, Alabama says Thomaston's local water plant remains closed to resolve pump issues.

Officials say some residents and businesses have been without water since Wednesday evening. Parents were notified Wednesday advising them to pack bottled water for their children.

The city will work closely with school officials to determine whether or not students should report to school tomorrow.

There's still no word as to how long the boil order will remain in effect. Stay with WTVM.com for the very latest.
