IRONTON — Residents on one block in Ironton should continue until tomorrow to boil their water before drinking it.

A cautionary boil-water advisory was issued for residents of Eighth Street from Washington to Adams Street because of a water main break that occurred around 4 a.m. Sunday, said Steve Collins, water plant operator for the City of Ironton.

“Anytime you shut the water off you have to put out an advisory,” Collins said.
