TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Members of Talquin Electric Cooperative are under a precautionary boil water notice.

It's for cooperative water members in the Bradfordville Water System in the Killearn Lakes subdivision. Around 4,200 water services are affected.

Officials say it's because of a water main break in addition to demand for fire flow due to a house fire.

During this boil water advisory, do not drink the water without boiling it for one minute first, then let it cool before using it to drink or cook.

Customers may also notice discolored tap water due to shifting sediments in the water main.  Washing clothes with discolored water may tint or stain garments.
