WINCHESTER -- A Boil water advisory was issued Tuesday for town of Winchester.

Officials said that the water system lost pressure around 6 p.m due to a water main break.

Due to the chance of harmful microbes that can enter the water, residents of Winchester are being asked to boil their water before using it.

Winchester Public Schools issued an advisory Wednesday asking parents to send their kids to school with a water bottle due to the water main break. If they do not, one will be provided for them. Winchester Public Schools are on a three-hour delay Wednesday morning due to the weather

The advisory is likely to be in effect for at least two days until the problem is fixed.

The town of Winchester will inform the public when the advisory is lifted.
