(KSL News) -- People in a Mapleton neighborhood that have been ordered to boil their drinking water will find out tomorrow if their water is safe to drink again.

Tests over the weekend discovered part of the city's water system had been contaminated with e-coli, after heavy rain flooded one of the culinary water springs.

So as a precaution residents who live in the southwest area of Mapleton are asked to boil water for drinking, food preparation and dishwashing.

The problem has been fixed and results from water samples are expected back tomorrow.
