Riviera residents have been without drinking water for several days.

Hoot Gibson with Riviera Water System said a lightning storm hit their computer system that operates the pumps, causing them to stop. He says a new system has been ordered which will cost around $4000.

On Saturday, the pumps turned on starting for two-hour increments, but residents are being advised to boil their water before consumption.
