CLINTON, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Update: According to utility officials, this boil water advisory has been lifted as of Monday, October 9.

Officials said the initial cause of the order was due to repair work needing to be done on a leaky 10-inch water main. However, that repair was completed without any interruption of water service, and so the order has now been lifted ahead of the initially planned date of Wednesday Oct. 11.

Original: A boil order has been advised for the City of Clinton.

According to Leonard A. Helt, Environmental Specialist with Clinton Water Utility, the boil order will be effective starting on  Saturday, October 7, and lasting until Wednesday, October 11.

The boil order is for the entire city of Clinton.

The CDC’s guidance for how to properly boil water during these situations is as follows:

  • Fill a pot with water.
  • Heat the water until bubbles come from the bottom of the pot to the top.
  • Once the water reaches a rolling boil, let it boil for 1 minute.
  • Turn off the heat source and let the water cool.
  • Pour the water into a clean container with a cover for storage.
