Boil water advisory in place throughout Fort Wayne
Boil water advisory in place throughout Fort Wayne.
(WANE) A boil water advisory has been ordered for water customers throughout the city of Fort Wayne.
City Utilities spokesman Frank Suarez said a power surge at the substation near Lawton Park around 7:30 a.m. Friday disrupted operations at the city’s Three Rivers Water Filtration Plant.
The plant’s generators kicked in and the plant came back up within minutes after the surge.
Through the day, officials at the plant studied data from the distribution system and found there had been a 60 second loss of pressure in some parts of the community.
At that point, Suarez said the city contacted the Indiana Department of Environmental Management.
The boil advisory is in effect until further notice for a portion of the City bounded by Washington Center Road in the north, a portion of Maplecrest and Meyer Road in the east, the Hillagas Road and St. Marys River in the west and Tillman Road in the south.
