The affected area is Channing Street, from Reid Street to Wilder Street; Wilder Street from Channing Street to Smith Street; Chamberlin Street from Channing to the dead end; and 340 Lake Street.

Water service will be interrupted at 8 a.m. on Monday, February 11, and be restored by 5 p.m. that day. A boil-order advisory, as required by the Ohio EPA, will be in effect from the time water service is restored on Monday until Wednesday, February 13, at 5 p.m.

A boil-order advisory is issued due to the remote possibility that bacteria could be introduced into the water system when a main is depressurized.
