EVANSDALE, Iowa (KCRG) - Poyner Elementary and Bunger Middle Schools are closed Thursday after a water main break that school officials say is impacting most of the city of Evansdale.

Evansdale Water Works issued a boil water advisory due to the water main break.

In a Facebook post, Evansdale Water Works said customers alerted them to a loss of water pressure. The water main break happened near the intersection of Grand Boulevard and Lafayette Road.

Water will need to be boiled before it can be consumed until officials can ensure water is free of possible bacteria.

Water has also been turned off from the Water Tower due to the extent of the break. Evansdale Water Works says everyone will be without water while crews work to repair the break.
