Water Main Fixed, Boil Order in Effect


An overnight water main break leaves several communities under a boil order.

It happened around 3 A.M. Thursday morning in Brazil.

A 12 inch water main at Walnut and Pinckley Streets cracked.

Crews have repaired it and water is back on.

Now, there’s a boil order in effect for Brazil, Center Point, Carbon, Knightsville and Harmony.

“The treatment plant will start pulling samples and they should have the results, say Tuesday or Wednesday, and we’ll know when the boil order goes away. But for right now, they’re under a boil order until further notice,” says Corky West, the superintendent of water distribution.

During the repairs, people may have had no water or experienced low water pressure.
