A sign welcomes visitors into Winfield. 

WINFIELD — Indiana American Water has issued a boil water advisory for the town of Winfield until further notice. 

In a message to customers Monday, Indiana American Water said a precautionary boil water advisory was in place after a power outage from overnight storms affected the utility company’s booster pump station in Merrillville, causing water pressure to fall below a certain level. 

Go on patrol with Aaron Crawford, a Cpl. with the Lowell Police Department, as he speaks about joining the force, DUI enforcement grants, and police Jiu-jitsu training.

The utility company said while power has been restored and water pressure has returned to normal, customers should bring water to a rolling boil for three minutes before using it to cook, drink or brush their teeth. 

“Water is OK for bathing, washing and other common uses,” Indiana American Water said in the alert.

Indiana American Water said it expects the advisory will be in effect for at least 24 hours. The emergency alert was issued at 11:55 a.m. Monday.
