Miamisburg lifts boil advisory 


UPDATE @ 6 p.m. (April 21)

The city of Miamisburg has lifted a boil advisory issued Wednesday after a mechanical issue at the water treatment plant.

UPDATE @11:23 a.m. (April 21)

A Miamisburg water boil advisory in its second day is impacting about 25 percent of the city customers, including many downtown businesses. 

Business at TJ Chumps on East Linden Avenue has dropped off, said Managing Partner Mike Leigh, since the city issued the boil advisory after a mechanical failure at its water treatment facility occurred overnight Wednesday. 

The boil advisory “absolutely” had some impact on the 10 to 15 percent drop Leigh estimated the restaurant has witnessed since it was issued. Work at treatment plant is part of the city’s $69 million water and sewer improvements. It is unclear at this point if the mechanical failure is related to that project.

The boil advisory is expected to remain through “most of the day,” according to Miamisburg Public Information Officer Gary Giles. Free bottled water is being made available to affected residents during daytime hours at the Municipal Service Center at 600 N. Main St.

Business owners in the area say if the boil advisory is extended a third day, they will have to buy more water.

Melanie Wild, Curious Styles and Coffee Shop owner, said she uses a filtration system, but plans to take extra precautions.

"Miamisburg water especially has a lot of lime and lot of stuff, and so you know these machines are so expensive that you know it's better to have all of that, plus the quality of the coffee drinks or any of the drinks is so much better with the reverse osmosis and filtering system," said Melanie Wild, Curious Styles and Coffee Shop owner. 

Those affected should boil all water used for drinking, cooking or oral hygiene for at least one minute.

Anyone with questions can contact the public works department at 937-847-6635.

UPDATE @7:17 a.m. 4/21/17

The boil advisory is still in effect this moring and is expected to be lifted later today.

EARLIER REPORT

Approximately 1,900 residents and business customers are under a boil advisory Thursday after a mechanical failure at the city’s water treatment facility, city officials said.

According to the city, the advisory has been issued as a precaution for at least the next 24 hours for the affected area.

Free bottled water is being made available to affected residents during daytime hours at the Municipal Service Center at 600 North Main Street.

Those affected should boil all water used for drinking, cooking or oral hygiene for at least one minute.
