Argyle residents warned not to drink the city water

CLINCH CO., GA (WALB) - The residents of Argyle are being warned not to drink the city water Monday night.
City officials in Argyle, which is a small town near Homerville in Clinch County, were told the city water should not be ingested for 24 to 48 hours.

The pump motor in one of the town's wells burned up, and had to be repaired. The water service has been restored, but city officials say the water might not be safe to drink for at least 24 hours. 
First responders took bottled water throughout the town, and more is available at the Fire station and city hall.

The city's Facebook page has the following post:

Residents of Argyle: due to circumstances beyond our control the city water tank is down and the city will possibly be out of water for 24-48 hours. Please know that we have contacted the appropriate people and they are working diligently in this situation. We are sorry for the inconvenience but are trying to handle as quickly as possible. There is bottled water available for use at the Argyle Fire Station and/or Argyle City Hall.
