OMU has water restored and the plant is fully functioning, however, a boil water advisory will remain in effect at least through tomorrow. OMU said samples have been sent to the state for testing but they require an 18 hour incubation period. The water must be checked for bacteria before the advisory is lifted.
Officials say it’s safe to wash clothes and take showers but you must boil water before drinking. Bring water to a rolling boil for at least 3 minutes.
In the meantime, OMU says to avoid the area of the water main break while they still work at the site. That area is in the East end of town in the 2000 block of 4th Street including Wing Ave.
