SPENCER, Oklahoma -

The City of Spencer issued a voluntary boil advisory for residents after a water outage.

The advisory will expire in 72 hours unless the city notifies the residents otherwise.

The advisory is precautionary for customers who experienced water service interruption at any time last week.

Residents who did not have water service during the week who want to follow the voluntary advisory should boil and cool water before drinking it, cooking with it, brushing their teeth with it or ingesting it in any way (tea, coffee, ice, etc.).

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality recommends boiling the water for one minute, then allowing it to cool to at least room temperature.

People with skin wounds or other conditions should consider avoiding bathing in the water. If in doubt, you may want to consult with a physician.

If your pet has special health concerns, consult with a veterinarian or give your pet boiled and cooled water.
