ROBERTS -- A Ford County town is reaching out to its residents after its 11th water main break in the past two weeks. A pipe broke twice Monday. The entire village is under a boil order until further notice. The east side of town has no water at all.

The village president sent out a letter asking people for contact information to keep them informed. Above all, he's asking for patience. Most of the breaks happened because of old pipes and temperature fluctuations. The village plans to have new pipes installed by the end of the summer.
