(MITCHELL) - A boil order continues for a part of Mitchell after a water main broke at 11th and Brooke Streets Tuesday.

Fred Cassidy with the Mitchell Water Department says after sending a sample of water to the Bloomington office the results came back bad.

A second sample had been sent and, according to Cassidy, the results where not bad, but not good enough. He says the air temperature is affecting the chorine intensity.

A confirmation sample has been sent is expected back sometime Saturday. The boil order will continue until sample results reach acceptable levels.
