BLUFF CITY, TN (WJHL) -

The city of Bluff City has issued a boil water alert for people who live in the town.

As a result of that alert, Bluff City Elementary and Bluff City Middle Schools will be closed Wednesday, August 14th.

City Manager Judy Dulaney sent out a release that said crews took a water sample today and it showed there is an increased chance the water MAY contain disease-causing organisms due to high turbidity levels. According to the release, one reason for the high turbidity levels is because of the high rain totals Bluff City has recently received.

The release instructs people to not drink the water in Bluff City without boiling it first. The release says: "You need to bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water."

This boil water alert is in effect until further notice.
