Boil advisory lifted after Miamisburg water main break

A boil advisory was lifted Wednesday morning for residents in the Sherwood Forest neighborhood affected by a Monday evening water main break in Miamisburg.

Crews restored all water services early Tuesday after the water main break happened at King Richard Parkway and Gebhart Church Road, the city posted on social media and its website.

Multiple repairs were required and some repairs were able to be completed under pressure, meaning not everyone affected is under a boil advisory.

Only those who received a boil advisory door hanger are under a boil advisory. Those include:

  • All of King Harry Place
  • All of Nottingham Place
  • All of Maid Marion Court
  • King Richard Parkway from Golden Arrow Drive to Oakbark Street
  • 725 N. Gebhart Church Road
  • 726 N. Gebhart Church Road

The boil advisory will be in effect for at least 24 hours. Affected residents will be notified once the boil advisory has been lifted.

Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County offers the following tips on what to do during a water boil advisory and how to boil water to make it safe to drink:

  • Fill a pot with water
  • Heat the water until bubbles come quickly from the bottom of the pot to the top
  • Keep heating the water for one more minute
  • Turn off the heat source and let the water cool
  • Pour water into a clean, sanitized container with a cover for storage
