Austintown - Canfield boil alert likely until Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Youngstown water department officials expect that a boil advisory issued for all Youngstown customers in Canfield and Austintown to be in effect at least until sometime Tuesday.

That's when test results should be completed to determine if the samples are clear.

Around 7:00 p.m. Sunday evening residents living in the those communities found themselves without water.

Youngstown Water Commissioner Harry Johnson tells 21 News that there was a problem at the Webb Pump Station and that a backup generator failed to turn on.

Johnson said that the system was working again by 8:30 p.m. Sunday, and full pressure was restored about one hour later.

Water customers in Canfield and Austintown need to bring water to a rolling boil for at least a minute. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

Let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice.

The boil alert is in effect until the Youngstown Water department issues a notification that the alert is lifted.
