The City of Nelsonville has issued a boil order for the entire City as well as Village of Buchtel and York Township water customers until further notice.
The Athens County PIO Network said in a Press release that a major water line break on East Columbus Street is being repaired and has caused low pressure in the water system.
Crews are reportedly working to repair the break as soon as possible.
Areas serviced by the Nelsonville water system may experience a water outage until repairs are completed.
The advisory was issued due to concern that drinking water may have been contaminated which can cause many illnesses.
Officials advise those in the affected areas to Bring water to a full boil, and boil for three minutes prior to use. They say those affected only need to boil water for drinking, or preparing food or baby formula and not for bathing.
