The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority issued a boil water advisory Tuesday for Lincoln-Lemington and a portion of Homewood North in Pittsburgh following two water main breaks.

PWSA reported that breaks in the 1500 block of Lincoln Avenue and the 1700 block of Lemington Avenue, both in the Lincoln-Lemington, caused a water outage or low pressure at about 1,560 homes and businesses.

It is advising residents to boil water as a precaution because contaminants can enter the system during low pressure situations.

The authority will test water over the next 36 to 46 hours and issue an advisory after it confirms water is safe for consumption.

Residents are advised to run water for at least one minute and then boil it for at least one minute before using it.
