MOUNTAIN GREEN, Morgan County — Officials say initial test results Tuesday show water is safe in the Morgan County town of Mountain Green after someone recently broke into a water tank.

Cottonwood Water Mutual Co. distributed notices Monday warning customers that sometime since Feb. 6, "someone broke and removed the lock securing one of our lower storage tank access lids."

The company noticed the security breach on Monday and contacted the state Division of Drinking Water, according to the notice.

Cottonwood Water Mutual Co. cautioned people in the town that until testing results are confirmed on Wednesday, they should boil their drinking water for one minute before using it.

The boil advisory is expected to be lifted Wednesday after another 24 hours of testing, said Doug Dingman, a water board member in Mountain Green.

According to the notice, bottled water is also available at the water office, 4000 W. Old Highway Road in Mountain Green.
