Precaution required following water service disruption
MOUNT VERNON, March 9, 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 was issued at 6 p.m. Tuesday, following the completion of the water line work, which was needed to allow for a connection at the intersection of Marion and Washington streets. The boil advisory is in effect for 24 hours, or until 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 9, 2022.
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.
