Boil Advisory Issued for Mt. Vernon
Tap water may contain “disease-causing organisms”
A city-wide boil water advisory has been issued in Mt. Vernon. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:
Officials say the town in Posey County issued the advisory because its water system “recently violated a drinking water standard.”
They say there’s an increased chance the water may contain “disease-causing organisms.”
It’s not clear what caused the potential problem.
Mt. Vernon water customers are urged to bring tap water to a “vigorous rolling boil” for at least two minutes before using it for drinking or cooking.
The utility said it will notify customers when the advisory is lifted.
