Issued August 31, 2016

Due to a water main break the New Lexington Water Department is advising Water Customers on Panther Dr. And State Route 345 North of Panther Drive that until further notice, vigorously boil, for at least one minute, any water used for drinking (including water used to make ice), cooking or oral hygiene."

The New Lexington water system has no evidence at this time that the water system is contaminated. The possibility does exist however that the water system is contaminated and is issuing this advisory as a precaution.

The water department is making repairs and collecting additional samples and hopes to have this problem corrected soon. An additional notice will be given when the boil advisory is lifted. For further information contact the Village of New Lexington at (740) 342-1633.
