A water line break at OMU’s main water plant has resulted in a drop in pressure affecting the City of Owensboro, surrounding water districts and Whitesville Water customers. Crews have isolated the break and have transitioned to providing water from the Cavin Treatment Plant.
A Boil Water Notice has been issued. This notice includes the City of Owensboro, water district, and Whitesville water customers. Customers should bring water to a rolling boil for three minutes prior to consuming.
In addition, we request you conserve water use by reducing your usage for unnecessary tasks.
The Green River Area Health Department has provided consumer guidelines in the event of a boil water advisory, please note these same precautions apply in the event of a Boil Water Notice.
