Boil advisory for 25 residents after Dayton water main break

UPDATE @ 8:15 a.m.

Twenty five residents are under a boil advisory on Westview Avenue for the next 48 hours, said David Shade, water utilities field operations division manager, city of Dayton.

Crews are working on the main break and have salt trucks out. 

Shade said in 2016, the city had 115 water main breaks. There have only been 51 in 2017. 

He said the city has been replacing 1 percent, or eight miles, of water main each year.

UPDATE @ 6:35 a.m.

Some may experience low water pressure this morning after crews had to shut off water due to a main break.

The water main break was reported on South Westview Avenue just south of Third Street. 

Water still bubbling up from the main break is water that was still in the pipe, crews said. 

It’s unknown when water pressure will return to normal.


A major water main break has been reported on a Dayton roadway.

Around 5:45 a.m., Dayton police asked for the water department to respond to South Westview Avenue near Third Street. Police said there was a water main break coming up in multiple locations across the road, and said there was concern the road was going to give way.

We have a crew on the way. This story will be updated as additional information becomes available.
