(WBRE/WYOU-TV) A precautionary boil water advisory for Pennsylvania American Water customers Nescopeck. According to Pennsylvania American Water, it is due to a water main break. Crews are working to locate the break and restore service to all customers.
Approximately 600 customers are impacted by the break.
Pennsylvania American Water experienced a loss in positive water pressure on Tuesday, June 11, due to a water main break. A loss of positive water pressure is a signal of the existence of conditions that could allow contamination to enter the distribution system through backflow by back-pressure or back-siphonage. As a result, there is an increased chance that the water might contain disease-causing organisms.
Do not drink the water without boiling it first. Bring all water to a rolling boil, let it boil for one minute, and cool before using; or use bottled water. You should use boil or bottled water for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and food preparation until further notice.
