Businesses and residents who were affected have been notified. As such Ohio EPA requires a boil advisory be in effect for this area only until bacteria testing has been completed.

Bacteria samples will be collected before 9 a.m. Tuesday. The results of which will be available at least 24 hours after the samples have been set up. These bacteria results will likely be available after 9 a.m. Wednesday. At that time, if results are negative, the boil advisory will be cancelled.
