Water service has been restored for the 65 Connellsville-area customers who lost service following flooding Sunday evening, Pennsylvania American Water said in a statement late Monday.
Although service has been restored, the company has issued a precautionary boil water advisory for the 65 affected customers. Connellsville residents in need of clean, potable water are asked to bring and fill containers at tankers located at Breakneck Market and Bullskin Fire station.
A fraction of Pennsylvania American Water customers in the areas of Breakneck Road, Breakiron Road and the East End Extension were without drinkable water Sunday night after widespread flooding washed out a water main and damaged a pump station, according to a company statement.
A spokesman for the company said it would notify customers when the boil water advisory has been lifted.
