Main repair prompts boil water advisory

Follow The Republic:

A boil water advisory has been issued by Eastern Bartholomew Water Corp. for customers living along County Road 600 North, between Marr Road and Country Road 250E, because of a water main repair.

This stretch of County Road 600N includes the Armuth Acres and North Cliff housing subdivisions.

Work on the water main began at 5 p.m. Wednesday and is expected to last until 8 a.m. Sunday.

Boiled water should be used for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables, preparing food, making ice, mixing infant formula, brushing teeth and giving water to pets, according to the Eastern Bartholomew Water Corp.’s website.

To boil water, people should fill a pot with water and heat the water until bubbles come from the bottom of the pot to the top, the website said. Once the water reaches a rolling boil, let it boil for 1 minute. Turn off the heat source and let the water cool. Pour water into a clean container with a cover for storage.
