Though water pressure has been restored following a main break, customers of the Jefferson Regional Water Authority in portions of Montgomery County should continue to boil water for drinking and cooking as a precaution through Tuesday afternoon, according to officials.
A water main break Sunday on Soldier’s Home Miamisburg Road affected 1,500 customers of the water authority based in Miamisburg, said Tara Rinehart, the system’s office manager.
Customers who have signed up to receive automated notices through the system’s “Call Now” service will receive phone notification when the boil advisory is lifted.
Rinehart said the boil advisory is out of an abundance of caution and offered a guideline.
“I would suggest once it comes to a rapid boil, allow it rapidly boil at least a good 10 minutes,” she said. “This again is just precautionary. We have our water being tested constantly and also we have residences we will be pulling samples from.”
