A large portion of Brandon, Man., is under a boil water advisory after what the city is calling a ‘significant’ water main break Monday morning.

The city said the break, which was causing water pressure issues for the western part of the city, has been isolated and pressure should return to normal, but due to public health concerns, residents south of the Assiniboine River and west of 18th Street should boil all water for consumption until further notice.
