VENTURA, Calif. -- The City of Ventura is advising its water customers to boil their water before drinking or cooking on Wednesday.

The State Water Resources Control Board, Division of Drinking Water and the Ventura Water are advising customers to boil tap water as a safety precaution.

This is due to the system pressure loss from a recent water main break on Telephone Road in Ventura.

The mainline ruptured on Wednesday morning in the Wells/Saticoy area. The rupture caused nearby customers and businesses to not have water service.

The City says Ventura Water has crews on site working to restore the service.

The impacted area is located south of Highway 126, west of Campanula Avenue, east of Wells Road, including Lirio extension and north of the Santa Clara River. For a live map by the City, click here.

Until service is restored, customers in the area will be notified and advised to follow boil water precautions.

The boil advisory is intended to be lifted within two to three days.

Ventura Water and the State Water Resources Control Board are advising residents to not drink water without boiling it first. They advise boiling water or using bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes.
