PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, Va. -- Prince George County is urging some people who live and work in the county to boil their tap water before drinking.

"During [recent water main repair], areas of the Prince George County Central System Waterworks experienced low pressure zones, which could make the system susceptible to contamination," the county posted on social media. "The Prince George County Water System is advising residents to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes as a safety precaution."

The county hoped any water issues would be resolved within three to five days.
