ROCKCASTLE COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – A precautionary boil water advisory has been issued for some customers in Rockcastle County, according to officials.

They say 65 Kentucky American Water customers in the Brush Creek area need to boil their water.

Officials with the water company tell us that the advisory was issued as a precaution due to a water main break within the City of Mount Vernon’s water system, which supplies water for this portion of Kentucky American Water’s service area.

During a boil water advisory, it is recommended that customers boil for three minutes any tap water they intend to use for consumption, such as for drinking, cooking or making ice. After boiling water, customers should let the water cool before consuming it.

This precautionary advisory is in effect until further notice.
