BIG SPRING - People in Big Spring will have to boil their water if they want to drink it.

That's after a large water main break on Monday.

The boiling notice was sent out Wednesday morning because of the low water pressure in the system.

However, it's only for people who plan to consume the city water.

That goes for drinking, cooking and making ice.

It's okay for everything else.

It's not known how long you'll have to boil your water.

The city has to wait on water tests.

About two million gallons of water was lost on Tuesday and it's taking some time to refill the supply tanks.
