UPDATE: Payson Fire Rescue officials say test results for water samples may take up to 24 hours to come back. The samples were taken on Friday morning, so the results are expected on Saturday morning, officials said. The boil order remains in effect as of Friday afternoon.

PAYSON — Water service has been restored but a boil order remains in effect Friday morning due to a water main break in Payson, officials said. A water main break near the 700 North Arrowhead Trail in Payson caused about 200 residents to lose water on Thursday and is necessitating some to boil their water until told otherwise, according to Payson Fire Rescue.

The break was repaired and water turned back on about 2 a.m. Friday.

Payson City Water Department informed residents Thursday night that if they were without water due to the water main break and live between 400 North to 900 North and 300 East to 750 East, they will need to boil their water until further notice.

The boil order is primarily a precaution, but residents are urged to pass the message along to their neighbors in case they didn't receive the notice, according to Payson Fire Rescue.

Payson City's water department is actively working to solve the problem. Residents can contact the water department at 801-465-5217 if they have any question about the boil order.
