Until further notice, southern Barberton residents need to continue boiling their water.
One water sample tested positive for E-coli, says Utilities Director Jim Stendor.
He believes the bacteria may have formed when the pipe burst on Snyder Avenue that had a little sewage in it.
The water in the area will be retested Friday.
The city is hoping to lift the boil alert Saturday morning.
Residents along Snyder Avenue and between 5th Street SE and South Van Buren Road should boil their water for two minutes before drinking or using it for cooking.
Stendor also says to wait until the boil alert is no longer in effect to do laundry or wash dishes.
