All repairs to a water line break that left much of Ohio University and parts of the city of Athens without water Tuesday have been completed.

The Athens City Engineering and Public Works Department says they are now slowly refilling the Highland Water Tank.

This process should take most of the day. Public works officials say they expect the city's boil order to be lifted around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Ohio University's Athens campus remains under a boil order until 10 p.m.
