Water main fixed; boil advisory still in effect for Bellefontaine


The broken water main on West Sandusky Avenue has been fixed according to city officials.

Water pressure has been restored and should be flowing normally.

However, the citywide boil water advisory is still intact until water samples sent out to the EPA come back clear.

Testing results usually take about 24 hours which means the boil advisory will remain until at least Tuesday afternoon.

The water main forced several schools and daycare facilities to close Monday including Bellefontaine City Schools.

The Bellefontaine Water Department started the repairs late Sunday morning.
