FORSYTH - A boil water advisory is in effect in Forsyth following a construction accident that damaged the town's main water line.

The advisory was issued by the city of Forsyth. The damage to the water line, which caused the town's main reservoir to empty, has been isolated but not fixed, the Rosebud County Sheriff's Office posted on social media.

The Montana Department of Environmental Quality is assisting.

The Rosebud County Department of Emergency Services wrote that water that has gone through a home filtration system must still be boiled, and water service has been restored.

A few blocks surrounding the incident will be shut down throughout the day as repairs are made.

The agency predicted that the boil advisory will be lifted early next week.
