The Edmonson County Water District was issued a boil water advisory for the residents of the Rocky Hill community and nearby area.
Director Tony Sanders said a 6" water main broke sometime after midnight at the intersection of KY HWY 259 and US 31W (Crossroads). The line was repaired quickly, but to be as safe as possible, the department issued the advisory.
Sanders encouraged all residents to be part of the automated call system that alerts water district customers of advisories and other information in case of emergency.
"That's why we have our call system," he said. If you receive a call, you're under whatever advisory that's been issued. We only call the numbers that are inside the affected area."
The advisory will remain in effect until water samples have been approved as safe for consumption. If you'd like to be included in the automated call system, please contact Edmonson County Water at 270-597-2165.
