UPDATE: The boil water advisory for OMU customers affected by the pressure change in The Springs area has been lifted as of Wednesday, May 11 at 10:00 a.m.
OMU customers in The Springs area
Contractors working on Highway 54 as part of the widening of that roadway struck a main owned by the Daviess County Water District serving that area. As a result, water pressure has been affected for some OMU customers.
Work is underway to repair that main and stop the leak. Pressure should be restored within a few hours.
A boil water advisory has been issued for customers served by OMU in The Springs area. Customers will be notified by door hangers at your home or business this afternoon. If your home or business experienced a drop in water pressure as a result of this issue, you will be included in this boil water advisory.
As a precautionary measure, all water used for drinking or food preparation should be brought to a rolling boil for 3 minutes. This advisory has been issued out of an abundance of caution and affected customers will be notified when it is lifted.
For additional questions, please call OMU at 270-926-3200 and select Option 5.
