Valparaiso City Services crews repaired the water main break at State Road 2 and Horse Prairie Avenue late Monday night as affected customers’ water services have been fully restored. 

The City of Valparaiso says that procedures require necessary laboratory testing to assure the water passes the required bacteria testing before a boil advisory may be lifted. 

Therefore, the boil advisory will remain in effect for affected customers until those results are available. 

Results may take up to 48 hours or more if additional testing is needed.  Those that have questions can contact the city’s customer service center at (219) 462-6174.
