Conway residents continue to have boil water advisory
CONWAY — Residents will have to boil water another day after officials found and fixed a leak in the water system.
Early Monday, Conway officials ordered residents to conserve and boil water because of a low pressure issue.
Crews from Beaver Falls Municipal Authority helped borough workers find the leak, authority superintendent Sam Aloi said.
The break was fixed around 2 a.m. Tuesday, officials said.
In a social media post, Mayor Debbie Giska-Rose called the problem a “substantial break” and said that a specialist used tools to find the break underground.
Typically, a boil water alert lasts 48 hours from the time of the break.
Borough officials said the boil water alert could last through late Wednesday or early Thursday.
Residents are cautioned to not drink tap water without boiling it first.
All water should be brought to a rolling boil, continuing for one minute afterward, before letting it cool.
Either boiled water or bottled water should be used only when drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and preparing food, officials said.
