A precautionary boil advisory is in effect for part of Evansville’s west side.
Evansville Water and Sewer officials say a main break happened on New Harmony Road. This is the 3rd water main break in less than two weeks.
Those affected are anyone living in the 5800 block to the 9500 block of New Harmony Road, Koring Road, Lakeshore Drive, Marx Road, Woodbridge Lane, Harmony Hollow Drive, North Happe Road, Church Lane, Church Road, and Denzer Road.
Residents under the advisory should boil cooking and drinking water for 5 minutes before use.
Another boil advisory issued Thursday effecting much of the west side has been lifted. A water main split in the 4700 block of Upper Mount Vernon Road prompted the precautionary boil advisory.
Water samples came back showing no evidence of contamination.
