The original boil water notice included all residents north of Wilson Street, but on Wednesday, officials said residents on the south side of Wilson may have been affected as well. They were also asked to boil their water.

The outage began on Tuesday afternoon when officials say a contractor bored into a water line and damaged the line between the Water Treatment Plant and the elevated water tank on Eleventh Street.

It is estimated that this issue impacted almost 6,500 residents in about 3,000 houses.

Officials estimate that more than 1,100,000 gallons of water were lost before crews could shut off the pipeline.
