COVENTRY, Conn. (WTNH) — People on several streets in Coventry are being asked to boil their water because of a broken water main.

A contractor damaged it, causing the pressure to drop.

The Connecticut Water Company says customers of the Pilgrim Hills public water system who live on the following streets are affected: Grant Hill Road, Mill Race Drive, Appian Way, Wolf Hill Road, Carnic Alps Road, MaryAnn Drive, Mark Drive, Alice Drive, Mark Road, and Harriet Drive.

A water company is now advising residents of those streets to boil any water that will be used for cooking or drinking.

You do not need to boil water that will be used for cleaning or showering.

Once the pressure is restored, water quality tests will be done to make sure no bacteria got into the water.

Those results are expected to come back on Friday.
