FORT BERTHOLD RESERVATION, N.D. (KFYR) - UPDATE (4/25 at 3:15 p.m.): A boil order is in effect in the northeast segment of Parshall, but not in the city of Parshall itself.

Also, a boil order is in effect in the west segment of Mandaree. That includes all users along BIA 17 and from Route 30 South to Highway 22.

Power is back at the Parshall Lucky Mound water system. They are going through a disinfecting process.

They need to submit a bacteria sample two different times to the Department of Health to be able to be back to regular operation.

The water boil advisory will be in effect through at least Friday.

ORIGINAL STORY (4/24 at 7 p.m.): A mandatory boil water notice is in effect for the northeast segment of the Fort Berthold Reservation after the Parshall Lucky Mound water system lost pressure. Officials said do not drink water without boiling it first for at least three minutes or use bottled water. FBRW is working to regain water storage levels.

Saturday night, Fort Berthold Rural Water issued a Mandatory water conservation notice for the entire west segment due to power outages affecting the water treatment plant and intake facilities.

Crews are handing out bottled water to people in the northeast segment.
