The Athens County Public Information Officers Network says the stories are false:  water systems in Athens County are not shutting down.

The Network issued a news release to debunk the rumors.
That news release says one system is having trouble.
The Le Ax Water District is operating on generator power and there is a boil order until further notice.
Also, some customers may experience low to no water pressure.  
The problem is being worked on.
While Le Ax's status is "poor", all the other water districts in Athens County are fair or good.
If you have a question about this or other matters relating to the current emergency in Athens County call 2-1-1 or 594-2261.
