Areas of Evansville under boil advisory due to water main break
The break happened Wednesday night at 4710 Upper Mt Vernon Road which is close to the intersection at Red Bank Road.
Water and sewer crews said pressure was restored around 8:00 a.m. Thursday.
Treated water is now being sent through pipes again.
The boil advisory is still in effect, affecting one third of the city’s water system.
Early Thursday morning, pipes were brought in to replace the one that broke, which is a 50 year old cast iron water main, while the Evansville Water and Sewer Utility issued a precautionary boil advisory.
Still, the school has made preparations and schedules will be normal for students.
Some of our westside schools are on a boil advisory this morning.
Schools will operate on normal schedule.
