Utility issues boil water advisory

Jackson County Water Utility has issued a boil-water advisory for an area in the south-central part of Jackson County because of an outage that occurred early Tuesday.

The precautionary alert is in effect for an area south of County Road 275S along County Road 300W. The Starve Hollow Lake area is included in the alert along areas of county roads 450S, 400S and 540S.

The alert is the result of a water line break Tuesday morning, the Brownstown-based utility reported. Service has been restored.

When water service has been restored after outages, customers are warned to boil water vigorously for at least five minutes before using it to prepare food with or to drink.

The advisory will remain in effect until the utility can test water to confirm that bacteria is not present. Testing should be complete within three days.

For information, call the utility at 358-3654.
