Boil advisory issued by water department
STEUBENVILLE - A boil water advisory was issued Tuesday for South Eighth and Ninth streets until further notice.
Water Superintendent Mike Wigal said water customers should vigorously boil any water used for drinking, making ice, cooking or oral hygiene for at least one minute.
"This advisory was issued as a result of the replacement of a 36-foot section of pipe at the bottom of the Adams Street onramp. The water department is collecting samples in this area to be analyzed. Once the samples are satisfactory, a notice will be issued to remove the boil water advisory. Questions about the boil water advisory can be answered by calling (740) 283-6041," said Wigal.
