    0

    EVANSVILLE, IND. – (Updated at 1:45 p.m.) The water service disruption and precautionary boil advisory along North First Avenue have been expanded to include a larger portion of the North Park areas, including properties east of First Avenue and south of Buena Vista Road.

    Some of the properties impacted include Woodbridge Apartments, Buena Vista Apartments, Holy Redeemer School, and several medical facilities and restaurants.

    At approximately 9:35 a.m. today, EWSU began shutting off water to multiple homes and businesses along a stretch of First Avenue to repair a 24-inch water line. The initial area impacted was mostly east of First Avenue from just north of Buena Vista Road to Old Post Road. Water will be off in the area until approximately 6 pm today.

    EWSU water construction crews began repairing the water line in the 4200 block of First Avenue on October 5. The repairs could not be finished without shutting off water and removing a 4-foot long section of pipe.

    Customers are advised to boil water used for cooking and drinking until the precautionary boil advisory is lifted. The advisory will remain in effect for at least 48-hours after water service is restored. Customers can visit ewsu.com/boiladvisorymap to check the status of the precautionary boil advisory.
