Boil water advisory issued in Fleischmanns

The village of Fleischmanns is currently under a boil water advisory due to a break in the water main. 

Village officials think there may be more than one leak in the system, deputy mayor Ben Fenton told the Watershed Post.

"Because of the severity of the lack of pressure, we think there are multiple breaks in the line," Fenton said.

Since early Wednesday morning, village workers have been working to find out where the breaks are so they can be repaired. Village residents were notified of the boil water advisory by a phone alert system, Fenton said. 

Update, 2:36 p.m.: Village officials say a leak in a 10-inch main has been identified on Brush Ridge Road, and repairs are underway. Residents in the water district should continue to boil their water until further notice.

Update, Friday, March 14: Officials announced that the boil water advisory has been lifted.
