The City of Hawkinsville issued a boil water advisory for certain areas Thursday.

Officials say a tractor trailer hauling lumber in a neighborhood caused a fire hydrant and water valve to break.

The advisory is for:

  • Rawls Street from McCormick Avenue to Pate Street.
  • Turner Street
  • Pate Street
  • Fale Street
  • Hendley Street
  • Kibbee Street between Turner and Pate Streets

Officials say people in the affected areas should boil the water for at least a minute before drinking or cooking.

There is no word yet on when the advisory will be lifted.
