HARTFORD (KFSM) -- Hartford residents will be under a boil order until at least Wednesday (April 5), said Hartford Mayor Roy Shankle.

The city had a water main break on Maple Street, which was fixed on Saturday night. However, residents still need to boil their water before consuming it for a few days.

Shankle said he expects the boil order will be lifted Wednesday after they test the water.

The school district is also affected. Hartford High School Principal David Lee has been filling water coolers in Midland, a neighboring town, before school starts.

"Kids have an option of picking up a bottle of water and using that throughout the day, and they can refill their bottle of water from the water coolers," Lee said.

School cafeteria workers have been boiling water needed for cooking.
