The Greenbrier County Public Service District has issued a boil water advisory for a pair of communities.

According to a release from the #2 Water Plant in Greenbrier County, people in the communities of Leslie and Bellburn should boil their water before use.  Officials said that water to be used for drinking, cooking, bathing or hygienic purposes should be brought to a full rolling boil for at least one minute.  The water should then be allowed to cool before use.

Officials with the PSD said that the advisory was issued because of a main water line that broke in the Leslie area.  Residents should boil their water until further notice.
