Boil Advisory for Pleasantville
originally posted on September 9, 2016
Pleasantville is under a boil advisory until further notice.
The breach of a main line was repaired at Monroe and Columbus late last night according to City Manager Joe Mrstik. Mrstik says no cause has yet been determined, but tells KNIA/KRLS News many of the main line pipes in Pleasantville are 50 to 60 years old. Tests are being conducted to ensure the water is safe and Mrstik says if the tests have good results the advisory should end by Sunday or Monday. The advisory does not affect those on Marion County Rural water and though it should be boiled before drinking, city water is still safe for bathing and washing. The Pleasantville Senior Center will not serve meals on site today, but Meals on Wheels is still operating. KNIA/KRLS News will update with any new information as soon as it becomes official.
