KEMP (AP) - A boil-water advisory has been issued for a Dallas-area town with lingering pipeline problems.

The mayor of Kemp on Friday said multiple leaks led to the safety warning for drinking water.

Donald Kile says both distribution lines have failed since Wednesday. He says the lines are now fixed and the flowing water is safe for bathing, but not drinking.

Kile says testing will determine when the water is safe for consumption and clearance might not come until Tuesday. Bottled water is available at Kemp City Hall.

Kemp last August lost water for a few days because of problems with the same antiquated pipes.

Kile says government funds are being sought to help pay the estimated $2.5 million cost to replace the current system.

Kemp is 40 miles southeast of Dallas.
