It was a beautiful spring-like day in Gardendale; the perfect weather for grilling out.
But many residents, like Gilbert Tapia were frustrated by the lack of water.
This morning the Greater Gardendale Water Supply Corporation announced there had been a leak which they were trying to fix.
In the process, the water was shut off early in the afternoon.
The water supply company has issued a boil-water notice.
When there's a break in a line, there is a possibility of harmful bacteria and microbes entering the water supply.
As a precaution, they tell customers to boil water for two minutes before consuming or they can buy bottled water, which comes at a price.
Attendants at Mike’s Country Supply tell CBS 7 News that a lot of people came in today to stock up on bottled water.
That boil water notice will be in effect until noon on Tuesday.
