Signs have been posted on campus letting people know not to use the water, said spokeswoman Deena John. The college will be supplying and distributing water to people on campus on Thursday.

Food service on Sinclair’s campus will also be limited and John said that officials have asked students, staff and faculty to plan accordingly for that.

The University of Dayton is also still operating as usual during the water outage.

UD is providing bottled water to students living in residence halls while the boil advisory remains in effect.
