Residents of Stanhope are under a boil advisory.

The city was repairing a water main Thursday when the water distribution system lost pressure. When that happens, bacteria can enter the system.

People are advised to boil water for at least 60 seconds and allowed to cool before using for cooking or drinking.

Tests will be conducted on the water and once it is safe to drink the advisory will be lifted.
