Expect more boil advisories, Greater Cincinnati Water Works says
CINCINNATI — Fire up your stove, because Greater Cincinnati Water Works says that new state regulations will require more Boil Water Advisories be issued.

A new regulation enacted by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency requires the additional advisories, which are are issued when a water main break may have resulted in a risk to water quality.
Greater Cincinnati Water Works does bacterial westing when a water main is put back into service after a break, the agency said in a news release.
When they do issue a Boil Water Advisory, water works staff will place door hangers in the affected area and share info online via social media and at myGCWW.org.
