Officials with Veolia Water have issued a boil water advisory for parts of Saltville, Va.

Veolia Water told News 5 a power transformer blew earlier Sunday night and caused the controls of a well to go out.

People who live in the Lick Skillet and Cardwell Town area are encouraged to boil tap water until further notice.

Officials told News 5 the well in question is currently pumping water, but Veolia is required to send samples off for testing to make sure there is no contamination.

Veolia expects to lift the alert early this week.
