EVANSVILLE, IND. – A precautionary boil advisory for EWSU customers in the North Park area impacted by a water service disruption on Wednesday will continue at least until Monday, October 18. Water samples did not pass a series of water quality tests. Two consecutive days of clean test results are required before the boil advisory can be lifted. EWSU lab technicians will test water samples from the area again today and Sunday. The advisory will be lifted if water samples meet safe drinking water standards. In the meantime, water customers are advised to continue boiling water for cooking and drinking.
