INITIAL REPORT, June 28:

The city of Hamilton has issued a water boiling advisory for all customers on the following streets:

  • Edison Avenue from East Avenue to South Erie Boulevard
  • East Avenue
  • South 11th Street
  • South 12th Street
  • South 13th Street
  • South Erie Boulevard between Edison Avenue and Grand Boulevard

Grand Boulevard is not included in the boil advisory, according to the city

On Monday, a water valve was replaced and a manhole was set as part of the South Hamilton Crossing Project, according to the city. In doing so, water was shut down, which caused a partial depressurization of the system.

During this advisory, the city says water customers should vigorously boil water for a least one full minute after water begins to bubble.
