MUSTANG, Oklahoma -- City of Mustang water customers were put under a boil order Sunday as results of testing showed their water might be contaminated with harmful bacteria.

Tests showed the presence of coliform bacteria, most of which do not cause disease in humans, but their presence in a sample is an indicator that pathenogenic bacteria such as E. coli may be present.

Coliform bacteria and other pathogens are destroyed by boiling.
