Boil-water advisory in Berea

jkegley@herald-leader.comJuly 30, 2012 

Berea residents were advised to boil water before drinking or cooking with it because of a "critical valve failure" at the water plant, according to a news release.

The broken valve caused low water pressure before it was repaired, prompting the utility company to issue the boil advisory as a precaution.

Until further notice, Berea residents should bring water to a rolling boil for three to five minutes before using it.
