Repairs were made to the broken water line Friday evening.


Original story:

For the second time this week, Danville issued a boil water advisory due to a broken water main.


The break — discovered at about 3 p.m. Friday — left about 38 customers on Arlington Road from Kemper Road to Druid Lane without water.


“When service is restored, these customers are advised to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking, beverage and food preparation until further notice,” Arnold Hendrix, the city’s public information officer, said in a statement.


A Danville Utilities crew was working to repair the break in an 8-inch diameter water line along Arlington Road on Friday afternoon.


A break in a water line on West Main Street impacted about 60 customers on Tuesday. The cause of that break was believed to be temperature differential. Customers along West Main Street from Magnolia Drive to Woodland Drive and on Mountain View Avenue from West Main Street to Hawthorne were under a boil water notice until early Thursday morning.
