UPDATE: Broken waterline prompts boil advisory

A boil advisory remains in effect for residences on West Street between Garfield and west Williams avenues and on Williams Avenue between Troy Road and Clagg Street, as a result of waterline repairs in the area.

U.S. 33 rest areas, Logan Acres included among boil advisories


Motorists seeking a respite along U.S. Route 33 shouldn’t drink from the water fountains at the public rest stops until further notice.


East and westbound rest stops along U.S. 33 between Bellefontaine and Russells Point are among numerous public offices and businesses operating under a boil advisory today as Bellefontaine water department crews work to repair a main at Troy Road.


Crews have been working on the main for about a week, and redirecting connected waterlines has led to additional leaks, according to the water department and city engineer’s offices.


Entities instructed to boil water for at least five minutes prior to consumption include: Jubilee Mennonite Church; Resource One; Link Construction Group; Logan County Electric Cooperative; Brownstown Electric Supply; Logan Acres; Nash Finch; Logan County Sheriff’s Office and jail; Discovery Center; Logan County Emergency Management Agency; RTC Industries; and Bellefontaine Regional Airport.

Additionally, 13 businesses and public agencies including Logan Acres, Logan County Sheriff’s Office and emergency management agency and public rest areas along U.S. Route 33, have been informed to boil water until further notice.

Water should be boiled five minutes prior to consumption.

Water department crews have been working on a primary water main along Troy Road for about 10 days, which led to some water lines to be re-directed.

Fire crews responded with a grass truck to 809 west Williams Ave. about 2:30 a.m. Sunday on a report of water in a basement from a broken water line.

Officials will notify residents when test results indicate the boil order can be lifted.

Those with questions should call the department at 593-6121.
