STONINGTON, Conn. — Cleanup from a recent water main break in Mystic has led to a precautionary boil water advisory from water treatment officials.

Crews from Aquarion Water Company responded to a water main break on Gravel Street on Monday evening, and restored service early Tuesday morning. However, per the Department of Public Health, a precautionary boil water advisory is in effect, affecting nearly 50 customers.

The Mystic System was disinfected with chlorination to minimize the risk of drinking water contamination, officials said.
