VAN WERT — Van Wert residents should boil their water for three minutes before drinking due to a water main break Saturday morning. This boil water order remains in effect until further notice.
The break led to a loss of pressure in the distribution system which could allow fecal contamination or other disease-causing organisms to enter the system.
Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation. All stored water, drink or ice made recently from this supply should be discarded.
