The Nelsonville Water Department has issued a boil order for Frederick Street, Edwards Street, John Street, Williams Street, Grover Street from Fredrick to Madison and Madison Street from Edwards Street to the city limits until further notice.

Citizens are encouraged to drink only bottled or boiled water while the boil order remains intact.  The water department also recommends using bleach or chloreine to disinfect the water when washing laundry or dishes.

Boil orders are typically issued due to broken water lines or local flooding, but the specific reason for the order has not been disclosed.

The end time of the boil order has not yet been announced.
