NEWS ALERT: Boil Advisory for North Side



Precaution required following water service disruption

MOUNT VERNON, March 8, 2022 – Residents in the area of Chester, Madison and Franklin streets, just west of North Sandusky Street on the north side of Mount Vernon, are advised to boil their water following a planned disruption to their water service on Tuesday, March 8, 2022.

A boil advisory will be issued immediately following the completion of the water line work, which is needed to allow for a connection at the intersection of Marion and Washington streets. This news alert will be updated once the work is complete and water service is restored to area residents.

Affected residents are advised to boil their water from the tap for at least one minute before drinking it, using it for cooking or for brushing teeth, to assure that any pathogens stirred up by the disruption are eliminated. Once water has been boiled and cleared of any possible contaminants, it will remain safe. Water can be used for washing of clothes and dishes, and for cleaning, without boiling.

This news alert will be updated once the boil advisory for the area of Chester, Madison and Franklin streets is lifted.
