The Jefferson Regional Water Authority has announced a boil order for its customers with Book 9 through 16 on their accounts until further notice.

JRWA said that this means the affected customers should boil their water before drinking it, cooking with it, or bathing in it.

On the utility’s Facebook page, it said that the boil order wasn’t due to a main water line break, but due to a de-pressurization in the system. It added that the boil order is not for every region the JRWA covers.

The JRWA serves Jefferson, Miami and Jackson townships, along with the cities of Germantown, Trotwood, West Carrollton, Moraine and Miamisburg.

The City of Miamisburg took to social media to say that it is aware of the boil order but it is outside the city. The author of the tweet seems to believe the order is due to a water main break, however.

We have reached out to the JRWA for more information on the scope of the boil order and the cause, and will update this story when we have heard back.
