(ABC 6 News) -- Residents in Ostrander are being urged to boil water before using it. A boil water advisory is in effect until further notice.
According to Fillmore County Sheriff Tom Kaase, a heater in the primary well house failed resulting in pipes freezing.
The city is switching to its emergency backup well; however, it was disconnected years ago and has not been in use. The well will need to be flushed and tested before the water is safe to use. Officials will be testing for bacteria on Tuesday morning.
