The Evansville Water Sewer and Utility has issued a another boil advisory for Evansville’s west side after a water main break. According to the EWSU, the water main break happened under a bridge south of Broadway Avenue on Posey County Line Road.

While the potential for contamination of the drinking water is unlikely, the Evansville Water Utility is advising customers in the affected area to bring all cooking and drinking water to a complete boil for five (5) minutes before using. Please continue to boil all cooking and drinking water until we notify you that it is no longer necessary.

The Evansville Water Utility is implementing this precautionary boil advisory based upon information within the Water Supply Industry regarding additional precautionary steps that may safeguard the health of public water supply system customers. The conditions regarding this issue and the magnitude of the affected area warrant these additional precautionary measures.

The boil advisory will remain in effect until the break is repaired. We will notify you when the precautionary boil advisory will be lifted.
