Richmond and and parts of Nicholasville were under boil water advisories Monday morning after separate water line breaks.

The city of Richmond is under a boil water advisory after a water main break, according to Madison County Emergency Management.

The advisory was announced Sunday night at about 10:40 p.m. and affects Richmond Utilities and Madison County Water District customers. The emergency management agency posted on Facebook Monday morning that the advisory was still in effect.

The water main break occurred near Moberly Road and caused many people to temporarily lose water services, WKYT reports.

Meanwhile, the city of Nicholasville ordered a boil water advisory for consumers north of Edgewood Drive and west of Shun Pike, including the Squire Lake area, Meadowlark Subdivision, Rainbow Drive and all customers west of the U.S. 27 Bypass.

The advisory was issued after a water main break that occurred at 5:30 a.m. Monday on Courchelle Drive near the corner of the U.S. Bypass 27 and Wilmore Road. The break was being repaired Monday morning, and the work was expected to take most of the day.

The break was isolated and service has returned to customers, but the affected areas should boil their water before consumption.
