Water main break fixed, residents advised to boil water

Posted: Updated:

MOUNT WASHINGTON, KY (WAVE) - A water main break in Mount Washington has been fixed.

Several Mount Washington Water Department customers were without running water, causing some churches and restaurants to temporarily close Sunday morning.

Assistant Chief of the Mt Washington Fire Department Chuck Minor, said there was a break in a 6-inch main that caused hundreds of residents to be without water.
 
A recorded line at Mt. Washington Water Department said Mt. Washington is currently experiencing a water main break and they will restore water as soon as possible.
 
Although the break was fixed Minor said it will take a little while for pressure to build again. He advised that residents should boil water for 2-3 minutes for the next 2-3 days.
