CARDINGTON, OH (WCMH) — Residents of the Village of Cardington are being told to boil their water after a water main break.
According to village officials, a large emergency water main break has caused a boil water alert for residents.
Officials say the Cardington volunteer Fire Department is handing out cases of bottled water to families who need it. There are also gallon jugs available.
The fire department is also accepting water bottle donations from anyone wishing to do so.
No time table was given as to when the boil water advisory would be lifted, but the EPA has advised the village that even after water service has been restored, it’ll need to be thoroughly tested before it is safe to use.
Cardington-Lincoln Local Schools are closed as a result of the boil water advisory.
